= jruby-ehcache - Ehcache for JRuby

http://github.com/dylanz/ehcache

== DESCRIPTION:

jruby-ehcache is a JRuby interface to Java's (JSR-107 compliant) Ehcache.
It provides 100% full coverage of the native Ehcache API and also provides
some Rubyesque enhancements to make it idiomatic to Ruby developers.
Configuration is done with the traditional ehcache.xml file that Java
developers use.

== BASIC USAGE:
require 'ehcache'
manager = CacheManager.new
cache = manager.cache
cache.put("key", "value", {:ttl => 120})
cache.get("key")  # => returns the Ehcache Element object
cache["key"]      # => returns "value", the value of the Element
manager.shutdown


== RAILS:

Rails 2 and Rails 3 integration are provided by the separate
jruby-ehcache-rails2 and jruby-ehcache-rails3 gems.  To install, choose the
correct version for your Rails application and use JRuby's gem command to
install, e.g.:

$ jgem install jruby-ehcache-rails3
OR
$ jruby -S gem install jruby-ehcache-rails3


== GEMFILE:

Add the gem as you normally would in your Gemfile, making sure to require
'ehcache' explicitly.  Here is an example of adding the rails3 gem to a Gemfile.

gem 'jruby-ehcache-rails3', :require => 'ehcache'



== REQUIREMENTS:

Tested with JRuby 1.5.3.


== INSTALL:

$ sudo jruby -S gem install jruby-ehcache
