CacheBox Configuration

CacheBox comes pre-configured for operation for caching using a default cache. However, you can customize CacheBox using different strategies by levarging the CacheBox Configuration DSL.
When you are in a ColdBox application, you will have a cachebox structure in your ColdBox.cfc already that you can use, or you can create a portable CFC as well and place it in config/CacheBox.cfc
The cool thing about this CacheBox DSL is that it is the same whether you are using CacheBox in ColdBox applications or any other framework or non-framework ColdFusion application.
Configuration can be done in the following ways:
  1. 1.
    No configuration: Uses the default configuration shown below
  2. 2.
    Portable CFC: Creating a portable data CFC using the CacheBox DSL in a configure() method
  3. 3.
    Programmatic Config: Creating the CacheBoxConfig object and interacting with its methods programmatically
  4. 4.
    CacheBox DSL Struct: Passing a struct literal into CacheBox, using the CacheBox DSL.

1. Default Configuration

This is the default configuration when CacheBox is created with no config. CacheBox will
  • Use a default LogBox configuration to the console
  • Register CacheBox in the CFML application scope as cachebox
  • Create a defaultcache using ConcurrentSoftReferenceStore storage
/**
* Copyright Since 2005 ColdBox Framework by Luis Majano and Ortus Solutions, Corp
* www.ortussolutions.com
* ----
* The default ColdBox CacheBox configuration object that is used when the cache factory is created by itself
**/
component {
/**
* Configure CacheBox, that's it!
*/
function configure(){
// The CacheBox configuration structure DSL
cacheBox = {
// LogBox Configuration file
logBoxConfig : "coldbox.system.cache.config.LogBox",
// Scope registration, automatically register the cachebox factory instance on any CF scope
// By default it registers itself on server scope
scopeRegistration : {
enabled : true,
scope : "application", // the cf scope you want
key : "cacheBox"
},
// The defaultCache has an implicit name of "default" which is a reserved cache name
// It also has a default provider of cachebox which cannot be changed.
// All timeouts are in minutes
// Please note that each object store could have more configuration properties
defaultCache : {
objectDefaultTimeout : 120,
objectDefaultLastAccessTimeout : 30,
useLastAccessTimeouts : true,
reapFrequency : 2,
freeMemoryPercentageThreshold : 0,
evictionPolicy : "LRU",
evictCount : 1,
maxObjects : 300,
objectStore : "ConcurrentSoftReferenceStore",
// This switches the internal provider from normal cacheBox to coldbox enabled cachebox
coldboxEnabled : false
},
// Register all the custom named caches you like here
caches : {},
// Register all event listeners here, they are created in the specified order
listeners : [
// { class="", name="", properties={} }
]
};
}
}

2. Portable CFC

You can create a CFC with a single configure method with the CacheBox configuration in a variable called cachebox using the CacheBox DSL.
component{
/**
* Configure CacheBox for ColdBox Application Operation
*/
function configure(){
// The CacheBox configuration structure DSL
cacheBox = {
// LogBox config already in coldbox app, not needed
// logBoxConfig = "coldbox.system.web.config.LogBox",
// The defaultCache has an implicit name "default" which is a reserved cache name
// It also has a default provider of cachebox which cannot be changed.
// All timeouts are in minutes
defaultCache : {
objectDefaultTimeout : 120, // two hours default
objectDefaultLastAccessTimeout : 30, // 30 minutes idle time
useLastAccessTimeouts : true,
reapFrequency : 5,
freeMemoryPercentageThreshold : 0,
evictionPolicy : "LRU",
evictCount : 1,
maxObjects : 300,
objectStore : "ConcurrentStore", // guaranteed objects
coldboxEnabled : true
},
// Register all the custom named caches you like here
caches : {
// Named cache for all coldbox event and view template caching
template : {
provider : "coldbox.system.cache.providers.CacheBoxColdBoxProvider",
properties : {
objectDefaultTimeout : 120,
objectDefaultLastAccessTimeout : 30,
useLastAccessTimeouts : true,
freeMemoryPercentageThreshold : 0,
reapFrequency : 5,
evictionPolicy : "LRU",
evictCount : 2,
maxObjects : 300,
objectStore : "ConcurrentSoftReferenceStore" // memory sensitive
}
}
}
};
// Add caches per engine
if ( listFindNoCase( "Lucee", server.coldfusion.productname ) ) {
cachebox.caches.luceeCache = { provider : "coldbox.system.cache.providers.LuceeProvider" };
} else {
cachebox.caches.cfCache = { provider : "coldbox.system.cache.providers.CFColdBoxProvider" };
}
}
}

3. Programmatic Config

You can create an instance of the cachebox.system.cache.config.CacheBoxConfig and calling methods on it.
config = new cachebox.system.cache.config.CacheBoxConfig()
.scopeRegistration( true )
.defaultCache( maxObjects : 200, objectStore : "ConcurrentStore" );
new cachebox.system.cache.CacheFactory( config );

4. Struct Literal Config

You can also use a struct literal to configure CacheBox
new cachebox.system.cache.CacheFactory( {
// LogBox Configuration file
logBoxConfig : "coldbox.system.cache.config.LogBox",
// Scope registration, automatically register the cachebox factory instance on any CF scope
// By default it registers itself on server scope
scopeRegistration : {
enabled : true,
scope : "application", // the cf scope you want
key : "cacheBox"
},
// The defaultCache has an implicit name of "default" which is a reserved cache name
// It also has a default provider of cachebox which cannot be changed.
// All timeouts are in minutes
// Please note that each object store could have more configuration properties
defaultCache : {
objectDefaultTimeout : 120,
objectDefaultLastAccessTimeout : 30,
useLastAccessTimeouts : true,
reapFrequency : 2,
freeMemoryPercentageThreshold : 0,
evictionPolicy : "LRU",
evictCount : 1,
maxObjects : 300,
objectStore : "ConcurrentSoftReferenceStore",
// This switches the internal provider from normal cacheBox to coldbox enabled cachebox
coldboxEnabled : false
}
} );
