I would like to know if salesforce has any type of caching services?
Any type of service that would allow me to keep data across web requests and in memory ?
I did some research and did not find anything native to salesforce.
Like cache SOQL object results , so they don’t have to constantly be queried
I come from a java development environment. There are many caching solutions in Java
1) Object caching (keeps object in memory)
2) Query result caching (Keeps records in memory)
3) Application context (Keeps xml in memory)
My requirement is that I need configuration data. This data will have a small result set that will not change often but it will be used often.
So I would not like to query the database for it
