Windows AppFabric Beta 2 Cache Configuration March 3, 2010

Filed under: AppFabric,Cache,Dublin,Velocity — dotnetdave @ 1:57 am

Being only two days old there is little information out there at the time of this writing. By starting with Beta 1 configuration samples and working with Reflector to inspect the Microsoft.ApplicationServer.Caching.Core and Microsoft.ApplicationServer.Caching.Client assemblies I was able to make the necessary changes so that the configuration xml lines up with the associated configuration class. I ended up with the following.


<section name="dataCacheClient"
Microsoft.ApplicationServer.Caching.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral,




This minimalist configuration was enough to get me started with simple ‘Add’ and ‘Get’ operations against the cache.

var factory = new DataCacheFactory();
cache = factory.GetCache("default");
