I wanted to share with the group a new Object Store that Luis accepted into CacheBox. This store is called ‘BlackholeStore’ and does what the name says… makes your cached data vanish in a blackhole.
When developing and tuning your application you may find value in using this store to provide a baseline for your application.
Anything cached by a CacheProvider configured to use the ‘BlackholeStore’ does not really cache anything. So, every time you perform a lookup it will be as if the object has expired. And, if you actually call “get” a null will be returned.
The docs have been updated to reflect this new store.
If you are not aware of CacheBox stores there are various types such as:
ConcurrentSoftReferenceStore: http://wiki.coldbox.org/wiki/CacheBox.cfm#ConcurrentSoftReferenceStore (my favorite)
And now: BlackholeStore: http://wiki.coldbox.org/wiki/CacheBox.cfm#BlackholeStore
