Sorry I missed your post earlier....

No you don't have to use Expresso from the ground up.  For example, you can 
use DBObjects for your data access, and then straight struts 
actions.  Anyway, the CacheManager is fully independant of even the 
DBObject components, so you can use it to your heart's content.  For 
example, there's an example in:

of the security system creating it's own cache to significantly speed table 
lookups for security checking.

There's an ea-4 coming out pretty soon, I've done some work to the Cache 
system to make it more scaleable and robust.  I'd give it a whirl.
