LoadingCache<Key, Graph> graphs = Caffeine.newBuilder() .maximumSize(10_000) .expireAfterWrite(Duration.ofMinutes(5)) .refreshAfterWrite(Duration.ofMinutes(1)) .build(key -> createExpensiveGraph(key));
Features at a Glance
Caffeine provides flexible construction to create a cache with a combination of the following features:
- automatic loading of entries into the cache, optionally asynchronously
- size-based eviction when a maximum is exceeded based on frequency and recency
- time-based expiration of entries, measured since last access or last write
- asynchronously refresh when the first stale request for an entry occurs
- keys automatically wrapped in weak references
- values automatically wrapped in weak or soft references
- notification of evicted (or otherwise removed) entries
- writes propagated to an external resource
- accumulation of cache access statistics
In addition, Caffeine offers the following extensions:
