From Terracotta/Software AG
Louis Jacomet has been perfecting his knowledge of Java for more than 10 years. Always a developer at heart, his role evolved over the last years to include technical team leading, coaching and some management. In addition to the bits and bytes, Louis is interested in people management skills mandatory to create a productive project team. To complete the buzzword bingo, Louis is interested in agile practices for the visibility, communication and result orientation it promotes. Louis works remotely from Belgium for Terracotta, with a focus on Ehcache.
After more than 10 years, Java finally has a standard caching API as delivered by JSR-107. In parallel, Ehcache - the well known and over 10 years old caching library - is getting a reboot. Version 3 is announced: JSR-107 compliant, fully generified API, the good pieces of the 2.x line and a few innovations.
This could be a lot to digest at once, so the presentation will be run like a menu:
- As a starter, you will be introduced to the JSR-107 API and features.
- The main course will be to go over real-world caching use cases. This will allow us to understand what javax.cache offers but also lacks in places. It will be served with some additional features of Ehcache 3. This will show you how to get to them while your application keeps addressing the specification APIs.
- For desert, we will look at specific feature(s) that make Ehcache 3 unique compared to other cache offerings, including former versions.
