Subject [jira] [Created] (JCS-193) How to configure caches used by interceptors (i.e. CacheResultInterceptor) related to JCache annotations
Date Tue, 03 Jul 2018 16:36:00 GMT
Ricard Nàcher Roig created JCS-193:

             Summary: How to configure caches used by interceptors (i.e. CacheResultInterceptor)
related to JCache annotations
                 Key: JCS-193
             Project: Commons JCS
          Issue Type: Question
    Affects Versions: jcs-2.2
            Reporter: Ricard Nàcher Roig

I started using JCS cache as a JCache implementation provider a few days ago and everything
was fine until I needed to set up expiration for cached data or even the number of elements
stored in the cache. I realized that caches were created with EternalPolicy so I started to
figure out how to set up both implementation specific properties and Standard JCache ones.
After a couple of days, I don't have a pretty idea about how to configure the caches related
to methods annotated with JCache annotations like CacheResult, CacheRemove and so on.

I mean that I already know that I can use the CacheDefaults annotation, both at class and
method level, in order to set the name of the cache to be used. but another thing is to also
set the CacheResolverFactory. Should I always set the CacheResolverFactory in the annotation
in order to be able to create the cache using a specific set of properties? It seems too
much boilerplate to me. Maybe I am wrong but I think that we are not using the CDI power at

and please, let me know if there is better/simplier aproach.

What about this?

Add CachingProvider and CacheManager as beans if they are not already beans. Notice that this
is what jcs-jcache-extras module already does! 

So as a developer I can configure my CachingProvider and even the cache manager already configured
as beans.  They will be injected where needed instead of being created without configuration.

no configuration in CacheResolverFactory 
public CacheResolverFactoryImpl()
  provider = Caching.getCachingProvider();
  cacheManager = provider.getCacheManager(provider.getDefaultURI(), provider.getDefaultClassLoader());
but in JCacheFilter class some properties are set

manager = provider.getCacheManager(URI.create(uri), classLoader, properties);
One step further into CDI should be to also provide the CacheResolverFactory as a bean and
also the 

CacheResolverFactoryImpl could be also injected with the cacheProvider and CacheManager and
some CompleteConfigurationResolver of something like that in order to avoid creating caches
with a hard-coded MutableConfiguration. 
public class CacheResolverFactoryImpl implements CacheResolverFactory
private Cache<?, ?> createCache(final String exceptionCacheName)
  cacheManager.createCache(exceptionCacheName, new   MutableConfiguration<Object, Object>().setStoreByValue(false));
  return cacheManager.getCache(exceptionCacheName);

 with these changes, we reduce boilerplate and give more control to jcs-jcache library clients.

 Can we move ExtraJCacheExtension to jcs-jcache in order to be able to handle CachingProvider
and CacheManager as beans?

best regards,
