I want to cache a simple Book Author application and tweak the caching according to the freshness requirements of the users. My question is Can we use Infinispan as shared cache without using Hibernate or Hibernate second level cache?? 

I have found some stuff which says infinispan as hibernate second level cache. But what if I just do not want add an extra layer of hibernate just use Jboss container which has entity beans and we can cache it by adding Infinspan???

The other thing which is not clear even in case of I have to use any third party ORM , which itself has second level cache. So where will the Infinispan fall and what is good reason for using Hibernate second level cache or infinisoan as hibernate second level cache. It is bit confusing.

Any help will be appreciated\
