16.4. JBoss Cache channels

JBoss Cache is a fully featured distributed cache framework that can be used in any application server environment or standalone. JBoss AS integrates JBoss Cache to provide cache services for HTTP sessions, EJB 3.0 session beans, and EJB 3.0 entity beans. Each of these cache services is defined in a separate Mbean, and each cache creates its own JGroups Channel. We will cover those MBeans when we discuss specific services in the next several sections.
