Subject Re: Caching by pre-loading
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2007 23:56:42 GMT
iBATIS caches by SQL statement - your two statements are different, so there
is a cache miss.  This also demonstrates a fundamental truth about iBATIS -
iBATIS doesn't know about object identity.  So iBATIS would have no way of
looking through the first set of cached results to see if an object from the
second statement already is available.

You could accomplish what you want by loading all the employees into some
cache that you manage - and then selecting individual employees from your
cache.  Maybe your cache could just be a simple HashMap keyed by employee
