Give Java Caching Standard API a go using Infinispan 5.3.0.Alpha1!

As part of the recent Infinispan 5.3.0.Alpha1, the first Infinispan JCache implementation was released which implements version 0.6 of the JCache specification as defined by JSR-107. It passes 100% the mandatory TCK including optional transactions TCK.

A document on how to use Infinispan JCache implementation has just been released, which explains the basics of using JCache, how it differs with existing APIs provided by the JDK, and how to cluster JCache based cache instances. More information will be added to the document, including quickstarts, as we make further progress in the Infinispan 5.3 series.

Please note that the CDI and annotations part of JCache 0.6 specification is still in flux, and we’re not yet able to provide an implementation for it, but we expect the issues stopping the implementation to be resolved in the near future.

Finally, as it’s expected from first releases, some bugs might be present, so if you encounter any misbehaviour, check the list of issues associated with the JCache component to see if the issue has already been resolved, or if not, please report it so that it can be fixed ASAP :).

Cheers, Galder
