The JCache API implementation for Redis has been expected by Java community since its publication. Finally, the day has come. The Redisson team now proudly presents to you our JCache API (JSR-107) implementation for Redis, an implementation based on the Redisson framework.

Let's get started with a few configuration examples. Redisson supports two configuration formats — JSON and YAML. If a configuration instance is not defined at runtime, then Redisson will look for /redisson-jcache.json or /redisson-jcache.yaml in the classpath.

MutableConfiguration<String, String> config = new MutableConfiguration<>();

CacheManager manager = Caching.getCachingProvider().getCacheManager();
Cache<String, String> cache = manager.createCache("namedCache", config);

The configuration can be defined manually and loaded from literally anywhere, thanks to the URI object.

MutableConfiguration<String, String> config = new MutableConfiguration<>();

// json config
URI redissonConfigUri = getClass().getResource("redisson-jcache.json").toURI();
// or yaml config
URI redissonConfigUri = getClass().getResource("redisson-jcache.yaml").toURI();

CacheManager manager = Caching.getCachingProvider().getCacheManager(redissonConfigUri, null);
Cache<String, String> cache = manager.createCache("namedCache", config);


It's also worth mentioning that Redisson supports all available Redis configurations:

Data Serialization

Data serialization has always been an important part of any framework that works with Redis. Redisson has provided a few good data codecs to choose from:

  1. Jackson JSON
  2. Avro
  3. Smile
  4. CBOR
  5. MsgPack
  6. Kryo
  7. FST
  8. LZ4
  9. Snappy
  10. JDK Serialization

Conclusions

If you one of those who has been waiting for Redis based JCache API (JSR-107) implementation, then wait no more. Enjoy Redisson!
