Ehcache is used in our system. While running unit test cases, I got following info,
2010-1-13 17:34:58 net.sf.ehcache.util.UpdateChecker doCheck
Info: New update(s) found: 1.7.2 [http://ehcache.org/news.html]
Although this prompt info was eventually disabled in ehcache.xml, I still wonder how come Ehcache check user local info (Ehcache version, maybe others we don't know so far) without user permission. From my point of view, Ehcache is Java library, and it doesn't have any rights to check local info (any info) without permission.
Let's hope Ehcache could close any illegal check of user local info!
