Chapter 15. Infinispan

15.1. About Infinispan

Infinispan is a Java data grid platform. It provides a JSR-107 compatible cache interface for managing cached data.
The following Infinispan cache containers are used in JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6:
  • web for Web Session Clustering
  • ejb for Stateful Session Bean Clustering
  • hibernate for entity caching
  • singleton for singleton caching
Each cache container defines a "repl" and a "dist" cache. These caches should not be used directly by user applications.

Important

Users can add more cache containers and caches, and reference them via JNDI. However, this is unsupported in JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.
For more information about Infinispan functionality and configuration options see the Infinispan Documentation.
