I am a newbie to JBoss and currently weighing the option of using JBoss cache on WebSphere Application Server (WAS).
I want to have a shared cache which is cluster aware and can act as a platform component which can be easily extended by different components to have their own cache.
WAS provides an option to implement a shared cache, but I came to know that JBoss cache is more robust than the one provided by WAS, and I did not want to get tied with WAS. Hence, I was trying to do sort of evaluation for the different options available.
I wanted to know:
1. Whether JBoss cache can be used over WAS 6.x?
2. If yes, then is there some guideline/example available regarding this?
