Caffeine is a high performance, near optimal caching library based on Java 8. For more details, see our user's guide and browse the API docs for the latest release.

Cache

Caffeine provides an in-memory cache using a Google Guava inspired API. The improvements draw on our experience designing Guava's cache and ConcurrentLinkedHashMap.

LoadingCache<Key, Graph> graphs = Caffeine.newBuilder()
    .maximumSize(10_000)
    .expireAfterWrite(5, TimeUnit.MINUTES)
    .refreshAfterWrite(1, TimeUnit.MINUTES)
    .build(key -> createExpensiveGraph(key));
