I am using Spring 3.0.6 in my project in which i am trying to configure the annotation based ehcache. Below are the beans i have defined for cacheManager and cache in my spring context. When i test this configuration i am not getting the cache under the cacheManger. The requirement is to provide the cache initializing parameters through a property file thats why i am not using external ehcache.xml for cache configuration. I am not sure if i am missing any particular configuration to make it working, as per the API it should add the cache to the cacheManager but while debugging i didn't find any cache in the cacheManager. Please suggest. Many thanks in advance!
