Hi All,

I'm a new bie to hibernate caching. I need youe help in understanding the cache expiration criteria.

In my application i have lot of configurational data's (read only data and updated very rarely) in a table and i would like to use "Read-only" caching strategy to cache the configurational data's.

I read about an article of hibernate caching and it mainly talked about the types of caching strategies like Read-only, Read-Write, Transaction etc., like when to use what.

What i like to know here is the cache expiration criteria's for each caching strategies ?
Where to configure the cache expiration criteria's for different cache providers like ehcache, oscache etc?

Can you please point me to any article which can explain this.

Unfortunately, the configuration of all that is vendor specific. Each caching product does it a little bit differently. ehcache is done in the ehcache.xml file for defining your cache regions. I recommend reading the cache vendor product's documentation that you choose. That would be the easiest to me.

Good Luck
