Subject Re: Communication (in-vm) between webapps
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2012 20:06:29 GMT
My first thought would be ehcache all the stuff in front end with a
reasonable expiration period (hours maybe), and then expose a very simple
JMX interface to manually reset the cache without bouncing the entire
app.  No need to send much data over JMX other than just a simple 'refresh
all caches' command. Pretty simple, but gives you a lot of options.

Good luck
