[hibernate-dev] On 2nd level cache and requirements off the cache implementor

Both Ehcache and Infinispan support transactions, but Ehcache doesn't
use this capability when running as Hibernate 2nd level cache, while
Infinispan uses it more as an implementation detail to provide
internal consistency, and not to participate with the application

So I think that the fact they both happen to also support Transactions
should be considered incidental.

I'd very interested too to hear from Galder and Alex about the
required atomic operation they build on. I could look at the code but
I'm primarily wondering of what they'd rather need conceptually, than
knowing what they are forced to do today.
