If I had to meet those requirements I would consider using a JavaSpace / Whirlycache combination. Bill

Thank you. Just to confirm, WhirlyCache in itself does not provide caching feature across VMs/Servers, right?

As I understand it, you are correct, WhirlyCache designed for a single VM. I would suggest you look into JavaSpaces as a method of sharing objects across multiple Java VMs. Probably the approach to take depends on how "expensive" it is to generate your objects from scratch versus retrieval from a cache. Also how many parameters are involved in matching a cached objects, because spaces have some capabilities for matching multiple parameters. An interesting problem! Bill
