I'm trying to see if I can get GWT to work with Ehcache for a powerful client-side caching solution.
But Ehcache requires that a file called
ehcache.xml be on the runtime classpath. At runtime, when a cache manager/factory attempts to create a cache (in the Java code), it looks to the classpath for this XML descriptor and builds a cache with the specifications it contains.
ehcache.xml? And not just for Ehcache, but for any 3rd party JAR that requires some kind of runtime configuration (XML, PROPERTIES, or otherwise) file to work?
You might try using REST and EhCache Server:
