Enabling Write-through Cache Provider

NOTE: This feature is not available in NCache Express and Professional edition.
To enable Write-through caching, you need to implement IWriteThruProvider and specify them in the cache properties. NCache Manager provides an interface for specifying them in the cache properties. For enabling write-through caching, follow the steps given below:
  1. From the start programs, launch NCache Manager.
  2. Open the project containing cache or cluster for which you want to configure the write-through caching.
  3. From the explorer, select the cache or cluster. In the right pane, cluster/cache view will be opened.
  4. From the view, select the Backing Source tab.
  5. For enabling Write-through caching, check the Enable Write-Through on this cache check box on the same tab.
  6. Click Add button and browse the Assembly that contains the class implementing IWriteThruProvider and then select class name from the list. The Assembly implementing IWriteThruProvider must contain the reference of Alachisoft.NCache.Runtime.dll.
  7. For enabling the Write-Behind caching, check the checkbox under Write-Behind column.
  8. Deploy appropriate assemblies to the cache servers using Deploy Provider button from same tab view.
  9. You can provide some additional parameters (like datasource file name) if required from the same screen.
  10. Add following namespaces in your project:
    using Alachisoft.NCache.Web.Caching;
    using Alachisoft.NCache.Runtime.DatasourceProviders;
    using Alachisoft.NCache.Runtime;
  11. The code to add data in a cache should look like:
    Cache mycache = NCache.InitializeCache("myreplicatedcache");
    Product product = new Product();
    CacheItem citem = new CacheItem (product);
    cache.Add(textBox.Text, citem, DSWriteOption.WriteThru, null);
    If you do not want to give provider name in API, you can provide it in client.ncconf. If provider name is not provided in both API and client.ncconf, default provider will automatically be used.
    <cache id = "myreplicatedcache" client-cache-id = "" default-readthru-provider = "XmlReadThruProvider"
    default-writethru-provider = "XmlWriteThruProvider">
    <server name = "">
    NCache logs the warnings in Application event log in case of an exception during loading the assemblies.
