hi all:
I have 2 question, and I really appreciate any suggestion from experieced developers.
1- If I have a certain set of information in the database, which I need it almost in every page I display (for example: a list of the functions available to a certain user) is it adeqaute to bring all this data and store it in the serverlet context object, so that it will be availabel to all other servlets? If I use this approch, if the information in the database changed, how can I change it in the application servlet context without rebooting the server? Note: consider a clustered application server.
2- If the first approche is not adequate, how can I approche the this problem? How can I make infomation available to every page and servlet without quering the database every time a user request a page?
Not: The size of information is large, and it is confidinial, so I can't store it in a flat file.
thank you all
