public class SimpleObjCache<K,V> extends Object
Eviction is based on usage. Every time a value is retrieved from the cache its 'usage timestamp' will change. When the cache is full, the value with the oldest usage timestamp will be evicted.
This class is thread-safe and is very efficient for read operations
get). The write operation (
put) will - if the cache is full
- have performance which degrades linearly with the size of the cache as all
elements will have to be inspected to find the eviction candidate. For this
reason, the class is best suited for smaller caches (say less than 1000
