JSF - property get method gets called many times

This thread is about the JSF caching problem: http://seamframework.org/Documentation/WhyDoesJSFCallMyGetterHundredsOfTimes

I have a <h:dataTable> which calls bean.getList, which creates a query to the database and returns some objects. I obviously don't want this method to be accessed so many times.

I wonder if anyone has a good solution to solve this problem?

Don't get the list from the database in your bean every time. Get it somewhere else and expose it via the getter, or cache the results the first time the getter is called.

Which is kind of what it says in the link you provided, no? And the comparison of caching techniques linked to on the same page discusses other options in more detail.

What other kind of information are you looking for?
