Using EHCache with Google App Engine

clipped from

Google App Engine How To


  • Speed - Ehcache cache operations take a few �s, versus around 60ms for Google's provided client-server cache, memcacheg.
  • Cost - Because it uses way less resources, it is also cheaper.
  • Object Storage - Ehcache in-process cache works with Objects that are not Serializable.

    We are planning an ehcache-googleappengine module which will integrate the speed of Ehcache with the scale of Google's Cache Infrastructure and provide the best of both worlds. Check regularly for updates.
