memcached does industrial strength caching outside of the coldfusion app server. memcached allows you to use more of the memory that you might have available and it allows you to keep coldfusion running using less memory than what you might normally need. offloading the caching like this can bring performance benefits as well as bring stability back to an overloaded apserver.

Memcached is used by some of the biggest names in tech sites namely livejournal, fotolog, slashdot and a few others.

There are also two memcached clients currently available for java. this project aims to make both of them available and accessable to you so that you can decide which one makes the most sense for you to use.

More information on memcached can be found here:


New Memcached client:
coldfusion 8 (java 5 or above)

Old Memcached Client:
coldfusion mx or above

Both clients:

Requires the use of the memcached server which is freely available and easy to use. Setup is simply an executable file.

memcached project home is:
