Cache Strategies

Name Function Default


The cache is updated after a transaction has changed an affected record. Strong consistency is not guaranteed in this strategy because there is a small window of time until the data is updated. This type of strategy is suitable for use cases that can tolerate possible consistency.



Used only for entities which are NEVER changed. So it is very suitable for static reference values in the database



This strategy guarantees strong consistency achieved by using "soft" locks: When a cached entity is updated, a soft lock is also stored in the cache for that entity, which is released after the transaction is committed. All concurrent transactions that access soft-locked entries fetch the corresponding data directly from the database



Cache changes are made in distributed XA transactions. A change in a cached entity is committed or rolled back in the same XA transaction either in the database or in the cache
