    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request, and apologies for the length of time it has been held in the status of Uncommitted Candidate / Future Consideration status. Whilst this is a valid enhancement which might hold populatiry for users of the .NET aspects of the product, there are of course other ways to achieve this use case with the existing Java interface which we already have for the global cache. Given this, the evidence of just a single vote for this item over many years, and the higher business priorities for the product, unfortunately on this occasion we are not likely to take action here soon, although we will most certainly keep this in mind the next time we enhance the embedded global cache component.

    Agreed, and thanks for raising this requirement. We'd like to implement access to the cache from a range of different transformation options, including .NET. (Today you need to implement through a Java method call.) We'll schedule in this work for a follow-on release or fixpack.
