The major new capability of Ehcache 2.5 is enhanced cache resource management, specifically the ability to set the maximum size in bytes of a Cache or CacheManager. This offers the following additional benefits to Ehcache users:
 
++  Ease of use. Tuning cache sizes is now as simple as setting the maximum number of bytes. No more setting maximum entry counts and juggling eviction parameters to approximate the maximum amount of system memory your cache can use.
 
++  Greater efficiency. Ehcache now efficiently manages caches based on their memory footprint and can dynamically balance their resource use based on runtime size information.
 
Please sign up below to join the Ehcache 2.5 beta program and download the beta software.

Mar 11, 2009 -  Dedication to Helmut Bauer

Helmut_Pic_0980520

We are in deep mourning for our colleague Helmut Bauer who passed away on February 11 2009.

His efforts are the base for the success we have with the Developer Communities, CentraSite Community and discussion forums. Most of the features and services we are taking advantage of today were initiated by Helmut. Until his last days at Software AG Helmut did the utmost to support us with all his expertise. He leaves a big hole and we miss him as skilled colleague, as well as a great person. Because of that and of the fact that his footprint is on most of the things we are doing, we dedicate our work to him.

 

We will always remember him.

Jun 25, 2007 -  Community Discussion Forums back on-line!!
We have finished the upgrade to the Developer Community discussion forums and the Adabas, Natural, EntireX, Tamino and Crossvision forums have been merged into one single forum system.
 
Please note:
If you had URLs bookmarked or stored which point to individual forum categories or individual forums we will re-route these automatically to the corresponding new system but if you have URLs which point to an individual thread topic then this will no longer work. (Note though that references to posts within the forum system itself will continue to work correctly as they will be updated as part of the merge process).
 
You will now only be able to log into the forum system with the e-mail address you supplied when you registered. Your passwords will be carried over from the old forum systems and if you were previously registered with more than one system then you will be able to use any of them to logon to the new consolidated system.
 
We will now also check and update any reference to the forum systems within the Developer Community, but if you find any links which do not seem to work or if you have any problems with the new forums system, please do not hesitate to contact us.
