Hi all,

I have seen a number of sites on how to create an enterprise library cache manager provider for AppFabric but they are based on VS2008 and the older Application Block Software Factory.  I was wondering if this can still be used with the EntLib 5.0 release or if there is already a cache manager for AppFabric.

Thanks for any info.

I haven't seen it but it won't work since creating custom providers has been changed in EntLib 5.0.  You can check the documentation for it here.  EntLib also provides the Extensibility Labs which helps out how to create custom providers.  Creating a custom cache manager isn't included but you'll get the idea.
