Cache2k, Java caching turbo charged

The development of cache2k has two streams: It is a robust cache implementation and provides features we miss from other products, on the other hand it is a research area to try out new caching algorithms and implementations to achieve the best performing in-memory Java cache that is available today.

The talk will start with some real-world scenarios and challenges and how the cache can help, making it the pivotal point in an application to manage data resources and provide them on time. The second part of the talk will be about modern and adaptive caching algorithms and why you should not implement yet another "LRU cache" by yourself.

This talk should encourage to use more caching to speed up applications and, of course, to hack and improve existing caching products. There is still much to achieve!
