Dataworks Enterprise Cache

Dataworks Enterprise Cache is responsible for providing caching and cross process messaging functions as well as providing Dataworks Enterprise API.

The functions of the cache are to provide:

  • Data caching
  • Messaging and Routing
  • The API

    However, the cache also provides a number of additional facilities such as configurations, logging, statistics collection, some parts of permissioning and authentication and so on.


    Version 1.0.0 - Initial Release

    Version 2.0.0 - Added Support for International Character Sets

    Version 2.1.0 - Added Support for Permissioning

    Version 2.2.0 - Added Support for Resolution

    However, almost all releases of the cache provide some changes to the cache code, whether they be bug fixes or additional features and are too numerous to mention here.


    There are many documents describing the cache in detail, indeed much of this site concentrates on the features and facilities of the cache. For instance, see the article Cache Configuration or Introduction to the Cache Object Model.


    This module only depends on standard run-time libraries. Although, some additional features may be enabled if the WinINET DLL is also installed.


    Most cache configurations are contained in RTCache.dat and fixed at build time and are very rarely altered in a real installation.

    Some cache configurations are held in the registry. See the above document for more detail.
