CachingContentStore class overview
The CachingContentStore class adds transparent caching to any ContentStore implementation. Wrapping a slow ContentStore in a CachingContentStore improves access speed in many use cases. Example use cases include document storage using a XAM appliance or cloud-based storage, such as Amazon's S3.
To demonstrate step-by-step configuration of the CachingContentStore class, the spring context file, caching-content-store-context.xml.sample is used as a starting point for adding caching to a content store. Once configured, you can activate the sample file by removing the .sample file extension and placing it in your Alfresco installation extension directory at <ALFRESCO_HOME>/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension.
