Class CacheManager

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    org.pentaho.platform.api.engine.ICacheManager, org.pentaho.platform.api.engine.ILogoutListener

    public class CacheManager
    extends Object
    implements org.pentaho.platform.api.engine.ICacheManager
    This class provides an access point for pluggable caching mechanisms. Right now, it only supports the caching mechanisms implemented in org.hibernate.cache.

    To use the cache manager, you need to include the following information in your pentaho.xml.

          <property name="someProperty">someValue</property>

    The specified class must implement the org.hibernate.cache.CacheProvider interface.

    Each implementation of the org.hibernate.cache.CacheProvider has slightly different requirements with respect to the required input parameters - so, please see the classes in that package for more information (available from the Sourceforge Hibernate project). Also, some cache providers (notably the org.hibernate.cache.EhCacheProvider) completely ignore the passed in properties, and only configure themselves by locating a configuration file (e.g. ehcache.xml) on the classpath.

    The cache manager supports session-based caching (that is, caching of data that is user-specific) as well as global-based caching (that is, caching of data that is system-wide). To differentiate between session-based and global-based caching, there are different methods that get called depending upon the storage type.

    Data that is cached for user sessions require an IPentahoSession object to be passed in. The cache manager uses the IPentahoSession.getId() to classify saved objects underneath a specific user session. No information is actually stored in the user session object. For an example of this, see
    putInSessionCache(IPentahoSession session, String key, Object value)

    Data that is server-wide (i.e. global) uses different methods for storage/retrieval/management. For an example of this, see
    getFromGlobalCache(Object key)

    Example Usage:

     String globalCachable = "String to cache";
     String globalCacheKey = "StringKey";
     CacheManager cacheManager = PentahoSystem.getCacheManager();
     cacheManager.putInGlobalCache( globalCacheKey, globalCachable );

    Important Considerations

    • Most caches require objects that go into the cache as well as their respective object key implement Serializable. It is a safe assumption that both the Key and the Value should implement Serializable.
    • Some caches are read-only. Other caches are read-write. What does this mean? It means that once you put an object in the cache, you can't put an object into the cache with the same key. You'd need to remove it first
