    Second level cache (ehcache) working?

    Tom Barry Newbie

      Has anyone been able to get ehcache working in a Seam application? I've enabled ehcache in my persistence unit:

      <property name="hibernate.cache.use_second_level_cache" value="true"/>
       <property name="hibernate.cache.provider_class" value="org.hibernate.cache.EhCacheProvider"/>

      and enabled caching for one of my entities:

      @Cache(usage = CacheConcurrencyStrategy.NONSTRICT_READ_WRITE)
      public class Organization extends PersistentObject {

      I created a basic ehcache.xml file as follows:

       <diskStore path="java.io.tmpdir"/>

      I put ehcache.xml into a jar file called ehcache.jar in server/default/lib so ehcache is able to find it. Where is this file really supposed to go? Does it really have to live there because that's where ehcache-1.2.3.jar is?

      After loading an entity in my Seam application I update it in underlying database using an external application. I would expect the entity to remain unchanged when viewing in it my Seam application because the object should be cached, but it's obviously being reloaded from the database.

      Any ideas?
