Subject RE: regarding JCS usage...
Date Mon, 08 Mar 2004 23:16:03 GMT


I don't think that anyone disagrees that the issue of utmost importance
for the Store is fast and simple. The work done to date on JCS, and now
EHCache highlights that there are some fairly well developed caching
systems out there.  Most of them fulfil the first requirement, some of
them don't necessarily meet the second ;)

As I said before, the advantage of JCS is that it provides an interface
to many different store types - which greatly enhances the functionality
of Cocoon.  I don't think there's much point in developing yet another
cache library when there are lots out there that do the job well :)  (I
guess that's why JISP was chosen to start with.)

As I understand it, the problem that we're trying to solve was initially
one of license, and then secondly a reliability issue within the version
of JISP being used.  The license issue precludes upgrading the version
of JISP used, and I wouldn't think that supporting the 2.51 version of
JISP would be a particularly attractive idea :)

Hopefully the various caching packages being looked at solve both

why don't we go back and see what is the problem we are trying so solve
instead of branching off like crazy?

we must store lots of objects persistently and retrieve them fast.

let's solve that issue first.

I think that a balanced btree implemented in a file system is the
easiest/most efficient way to go.
