Priority Algorithm for cache management in Java

Posted on 2006-07-14
Last Modified: 2013-12-03

Far faster respone to database queries, I need to have a Cache in Java that mirrors the database. Now, this cache should be intelligent enough to determine:

1. what kind of data is queries very often and keep that at the top far faster access.
2. Should synch with database automatically after certain interval so as to avoaid staleness of the data.
3. Other components should push certain data changes/updates  to this cache and the cache should in turn synchronise the database.

Appreciate any idea/code how to implement such a cach and the underlying smart algorithm??

You might try EHCACHE but you're surely asking much.

Hi ksivananth ,

Problem with Hibernate is:

1. May not be able to handle large volume of data as cache.

2. It anyway needs smart algorithm for :
  2.1 what kind of data is queries very often and keep that at the top far faster access.
  2.2 Should synch with database automatically after certain interval
