Hi Emmanuel.  I read over your emails and it sounds like we are both on
the same page with the caching abstraction project.  You have put way
more thought into it than me, and your ideas sound great.  I am
surprised others are not on board.  

Is there any way we can get some kind of formal decision out of the
commons-dev community?  Should Emmanuel take his idea elsewhere?  It
would be a shame because I really think this project would benefit from
the jakarta commons name.

Hi Karl, thank you for bringing this topic back up, I suggested the same

thing earlier this year (see 
but didn't receive much feedback. I have an implementation supporting 
EHCache, JCS, OSCache and SwarmCache, I intended to host it on 
SourceForge once the work on commons-configuration 1.0 is done 
(, but if the commons 
community supports this idea I'll be glad to bring the code back here 
and start a proposal for a sandbox component.

Is there any interest in such a component among the jakarta-commons 
developpers ?
