Data Module: Cache

Virtual DataPort incorporates a cache module that stores local copies of the data retrieved from the data sources, in a JDBC database. This may reduce the impact of repeated queries hitting the data source and speed up data retrieval, especially with certain type of sources.

By default, the cache module stores the cache data in the Apache Derby database embedded in Virtual DataPort. However, we strongly recommend using an external Database Management System (DBMSs) for this task, especially in production environments.

The section Cache Module explains how the cache module works and lists the DBMSs that Virtual DataPort can use to store the cached data.
