    MetaData caching

    Adrian Brock Master

      In the current implementation of the MetaData,
      I've decided not to cache misses.

      i.e. if you do
      MetaData.getAnnotation(DoesNotExist.class)
      it doesn't cache the "non-existance".

      I think it would be advantageous to do so?
      i.e.code that repeatedly asks for non-existant metadata will be faster

      The disadvantages are:
      * Bad code could fill the cache with redundant misses
      * Removal (e.g. undeployment) of metadata will require a full
      cache flush for relevant contexts rather than currently which
      just invalidates the individual item.


      Thoughts?
