JGroups impersonating memcached

java jboss jgroups memcached

I woke up and noticed that a memcached mode was announced by Bela Ban, the fantastically Swiss man who jogs waaay too much.

There's a lot of things in this world that can take advantage of memcached. Personally, I find this quite interesting, considering that memcached tends to be the cache-of-choice for lots of non-Java languages. For instance, fragment caching and model caching in Rails supports talking to memcached.

Or now, JGroups.
