    Does Java have any built-in support for file caches?

    Thanks.

    What sort of file caches? Are you talking about caching files in memory
    (which is more often an OS level operation), or about caching external
    resources (http request for instance) into a file?

    ASAIK, there is no "built-in" support any kind of file caching, however
    there are probably libraries out there to support what you want,
    depending on what exactly it is that you want. Also, Java does have
    "built-in" support for accessing the file system to read and write files.

    There is nio which is a sort of roll your own caching. The OS of
    course is running a cache as is the drive hardware in modern drives.

    All you have to do is buy more ram or install an SSD.
