We could potentially do so but we'd be missing loads of things and we'd 
have to spend a fair bit of time replicating the way Hibernate uses the 
cache which is not straightforward by any means. Take in account as well 
that there're several caches and cache usages involved here: entity, 
collection, query and timestamps and each has a different usage pattern. 
Bottom line: I don't think trying to emulate this is worth the effort.

What is needed here is a Hibernate/JPA load/perf test environment where 
the most common Hibernate usage patterns are exercised and then you swap 
2nd level cache providers. This is really what counts to the users: how 
quickly I can persist N entities, how quick I can read N times an entity 
that I've just persisted, how fast I can execute same query N 
times...etc, these are the use cases where the cache provider must show off.

I haven't heard anything from the HB team wrt to this, so I assume they 
don't have anything like this.
