In this new guide we look at how to improve cloud native, Jakarta EE application performance using the JCache.
JCache, or Java Caching API, is the standard cache API on the Java Platform. It is developed under Java Specification Request (JSR) 107. JCache, similar to other Java APIs, comprises a set of core interfaces organised under the javax.cache package. In this guide, we talk you through these interfaces and how you can get started with JCache, with code examples.
We also cover the fundamentals of performance tuning, take a look at caching in general, before moving on to JCache, what it is and how to use it in a Jakarta EE context.
By the end of this guide, you will have a foundation in getting started with caching with JCache on the Jakarta EE Platform.
