Caffeine is a high performance, near optimal caching library. For more details, see our user's guide and browse the API docs for the latest release.


Caffeine provides an in-memory cache using a Google Guava inspired API. The improvements draw on our experience designing Guava's cache and ConcurrentLinkedHashMap.

LoadingCache graphs = Caffeine.newBuilder()
    .build(key -> createExpensiveGraph(key));

Features at a Glance

Caffeine provides flexible construction to create a cache with a combination of the following features: * automatic loading of entries into the cache, optionally asynchronously * size-based eviction when a maximum is exceeded based on frequency and recency * time-based expiration of entries, measured since last access or last write * asynchronously refresh when the first stale request for an entry occurs * keys automatically wrapped in weak references * values automatically wrapped in weak or soft references * notification of evicted (or otherwise removed) entries * writes propagated to an external resource * accumulation of cache access statistics

In addition, Caffeine offers the following extensions: * JSR-107 JCache * Guava adapters * Simulation
