    Distributed cacheing using EHCache error...

    Neo Rye Level 1

      I've been trying to leverage distributed caching in our application using EHCache http://ehcache.sourceforge.net/and Cristian Costantini's ehcache.cfc tag implementation here: http://cfehcache.riaforge.org/. It works well when I'm not trying to use it in distributed mode, but when I try to change the cache.xml file to include the distribution nodes.

       

      I'm get the following exception:

       

      java.lang.ClassCastException: net.sf.ehcache.distribution.RMICacheManagerPeerListenerFactory cannot be cast to net.sf.ehcache.distribution.CacheManagerPeerListenerFactory

       

       

      Does anyone have any insight on how to debug this error or what it might be? Has anyone out there gotten EHcache working for distributed caching?

       

       

      full dump:

          I've resolved my issues and can now use very scalable distributed caching within my application across clustered servers and multiple instances.

           

          This issue was caused by the JavaLoader.cfc he was using and how it loads the classes on line 90. I had to change the create method to have ColdFusion do the object creation. I removed:

           

          <cfscript>

          var class = getURLClassLoader().loadClass(arguments.className);

          return createJavaProxy(class);

          </cfscript>

           

          and replaced it with:

           

          <cfreturn createObject('java',arguments.className) />

           

          Once I did this I no longer got the cast error. I'm not sure if this is an issue with the JavaLoader.cfc or the EHcache.cfc, but either way, it now works. Feel free to elaborate if you want...

           

           

          If you're trying to get it working, you'll need to get over a few humps first. This is how I got it working with RMI distribution:

           

          ·         Downloaded the EHcache cfc tag from riaforge.com which is currently in verion 1.0 Alpha http://cfehcache.riaforge.org/

          ·         Enable "Reliable Multicast Protocol" on the servers NIC. (I'm using Windows 2003 server).

          ·         Add the ehcache.jar (currently version 1.6 beta 5) directory to your server’s classpath. I did this directly in the jvm.config file. (I had to add the classpath since the ehcache.jar was not under my JRun root, but in my web root. When I didn't add it directly to the classPath, I ran into a security policy issue that was throwing an error, something like: no security manager: RMI class loader disabled.)

          ·         create a cache.xml file like the one below

          ·         follow Cristian Costantini’s examples for adding and getting at the cache.

           

          That's it, distributed cache. I like it!
