This week's book giveaways are in the Refactoring and Agile forums. We're giving away four copies each of Re-engineering Legacy Software and Docker in Action and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
1. First level of cache is maintained at Session level. So, it will be unique for each and every request i.e. session.
2. Second level of cache is maintained at SessionFactory level.
So, my query is that the second level caching can be used only for the objects which are common across all the users i.e. only one per application. Is it true? Please confirm. It is like an object in applicationcontext only (as per semantics we can think of).
