I have not checked it yet but from a fast review making CacheMap public 
and data protected would anyway force as to use CacheMap extensions for 
the custom implementation.

Maybe the easier way would be:

- change data field type from CacheMap to Map
- change data field visibility from private to protected
- add casts to Cache.(set|get)MaxEntries()
public int getMaxEntries() {
   return ((CacheMap) data).getMaxSize();

public void setMaxEntries(int entries) {
   ((CacheMap) data).setMaxSize(entries);
This way it would be easier to provide a custom Map implementation by 
overriding the constructors (creating a different map instead of 
CacheMap) and overriding the get/set max entries to avoid the 

What do you think?
