After my recent discovery of Hazelcast, I decided to update my caching aspect project to include a Hazelcast implementation.
The source code for this project is available here
For more information please refer to the actual source or my original Ehcache post. The main difference here is that the Hazelcast implementation is by default a distributed cache, and takes advantage of all the other functionality that Hazelcast provides.
The main points of interest for this implementation are:
- The actual aspect class. See code below.
- The application context. See xml below.
- The Hazelcast configuration. I am using the default Hazelcast configuration, located in the hazelcast-version.jar. To use a custom one, you can define a hazelcast.xml and inject it via Spring.
- The CacheKeyStrategy in the code below is an interface defined to allow key generation for the cache for specific requirements. There is a default implementation that simply sorts and uses hashcodes of the values in the class. You can define a strategy per type you want to cache.
