The EclipseLink cache is an in-memory repository that stores recently read or written objects based on class and primary key values. EclipseLink uses the cache to do the following:
- Improve performance by holding recently read or written objects and accessing them in-memory to minimize database access.
- Manage locking and isolation level.
- Manage object identity.
