List of Cache Providers in Hibernate and their Concurrency Support details

Here in this port you can find the list of Cache providers and their Concurrency support details. (Exerted from Official Hibernate Tutorial)

EHCache (Easy Hibernate Cache)
(org.hibernate.cache.EhCacheProvider)
  • It is fast.
  • lightweight.
  • Easy-to-use.
  • Supports read-only and read/write caching.
  • Supports memory-based and disk-based caching.
  • Does not support clustering.
OSCache (Open Symphony Cache)
(org.hibernate.cache.OSCacheProvider)
  • It is a powerful .
  • flexible package
  • supports read-only and read/write caching.
  • Supports memory- based and disk-based caching.
  • Provides basic support for clustering via either JavaGroups or JMS.
SwarmCache (org.hibernate.cache.SwarmCacheProvider)
  • is a cluster-based caching.
  • supports read-only or nonstrict read/write caching .
  • appropriate for applications those have more read operations than write operations.
JBoss TreeCache (org.hibernate.cache.TreeCacheProvider)
  • is a powerful replicated and transactional cache.
  • useful when we need a true transaction-capable caching architecture .
