Now that the JSR-107 API is near completion, a number of developers at Software AG/Terracotta (company behind Ehcache) are about to kick off work on a native JSR-107 implementation. (We already have a JSR-107 implementation that delegates to ehcache, here: https://github.com/Terracotta-OSS/ehcache-jcache).
Obviously Ehcache has a feature set far larger than the scope of JSR-107 (something true of likely all cache implementations). The current Ehcache API that is by far the most widely used java caching API originated in the days of Java 1.4. Its time that the API be made current and incorporate JSR-107 constructs where applicable. We’d like to do this in as open a manner as possible so that we can get as much input from the community as possible.
More information can be found in Alex Snaps' blog post here: http://codespot.net/2014/02/26/starting-ehcache-3/
Discussion will happen here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/ehcache-dev
Code will appear here: https://github.com/ehcache
Looking forward to everyone’s contributions,
