New and Noteworthy

  • Bulk support: New interfaces BulkCacheLoader and AsyncBulkCacheLoader which are used by the cache operations getAll, loadAll, reloadAll and invokeAll. The will get more optimizations and improvements in the next development releases. GH#166

Using this cache2k version

The binaries are available on maven central.

For Java SE/EE and Android environments

For Maven users:


Recommended for Gradle users:

def cache2kVersion = '2.2.0.Final'

dependencies {
    implementation "org.cache2k:cache2k-api:${cache2kVersion}"
    runtimeOnly "org.cache2k:cache2k-core:${cache2kVersion}"

Note to Android users: The included jar files contain code that might only be needed in server environments (e.g. JMX support). It is possible to strip unnecessary code. Example ProGuard rules can be found at Andriod - cache2k User Guide

Using the JCache / JSR107 provider

Maven users include the cache2k JCache provider this way:


For Gradle users:

dependencies {
    runtimeOnly "org.cache2k:cache2k-jcache:2.2.0.Final"
