2.2. Creating CacheManagers

2.2.1. Create a New RemoteCacheManager

Procedure 2.1. Configure a New RemoteCacheManager

import org.infinispan.client.hotrod.RemoteCache;
import org.infinispan.client.hotrod.RemoteCacheManager;
import org.infinispan.client.hotrod.configuration.Configuration;
import org.infinispan.client.hotrod.configuration.ConfigurationBuilder;

Configuration conf = new 
RemoteCacheManager manager = new RemoteCacheManager(conf);
RemoteCache defaultCache = manager.getCache();
  1. Use the ConfigurationBuilder() constructor to create a new configuration builder. The .addServer() method adds a remote server, configured via the .host(<hostname|ip>) and .port(<port>) properties.
  2. Create a new RemoteCacheManager using the supplied configuration.
  3. Retrieve the default cache from the remote server.

2.2.2. Create a New Embedded Cache Manager

Use the following instructions to create a new EmbeddedCacheManager without using CDI:

Procedure 2.2. Create a New Embedded Cache Manager

  1. Create a configuration XML file. For example, create the my-config-file.xml file on the classpath (in the resources/ folder) and add the configuration information in this file.
  2. Use the following programmatic configuration to create a cache manager using the configuration file:
    EmbeddedCacheManager manager = new DefaultCacheManager("my-config-file.xml");
    Cache defaultCache = manager.getCache();
The outlined procedure creates a new EmbeddedCacheManager using the configuration specified in my-config-file.xml.

2.2.3. Create a New Embedded Cache Manager Using CDI

Use the following steps to create a new EmbeddedCacheManager instance using CDI:

Procedure 2.3. Use CDI to Create a New EmbeddedCacheManager

  1. Specify a default configuration:
    public class Config
       public EmbeddedCacheManager defaultCacheManager() {
          ConfigurationBuilder builder = new ConfigurationBuilder();          
          Configuration configuration = builder.eviction().strategy(EvictionStrategy.LRU).maxEntries(100).build();
          return new DefaultCacheManager(configuration);
  2. Inject the default cache manager.
    <!-- Additional configuration information here -->
    EmbeddedCacheManager cacheManager;
    <!-- Additional configuration information here -->
