!Update [Nov 13, 2009]: Infinispan 4.0.0.Beta2 based Hibernate second level cache provider now available in Hibernate 3.5 Beta2. However, neither Infinispan 4.0.0.Beta2 nor the Infinispan Cache Provider jar are available in the zip distribution. Instead, please download Infinispan 4.0.0.Beta2 from our download site and the Infinispan Cache Provider from our Maven repository.
I’ve just finished the development of an Infinispan 4.0 based Hibernate second level cache provider. This will be included from next Hibernate 3.5 release onwards but if you cannot wait and wanna play with it in the mean time, just checkout Hibernate trunk from our SVN repository and run ‘mvn install’.
I’ve also written a wiki called “Using Infinispan as JPA/Hibernate Second Level Cache Provider” that should help users understand how to configure the Infinispan cache provider and how to make the most of it!
