Spring request-level memoization

Introduction Memoization is a method-level caching technique for speeding-up consecutive invocations. This post will demonstrate how you can achieve request-level repeatable reads for any data source, using Spring AOP only. Spring Caching Spring offers a very useful caching abstracting, allowing you do decouple the application logic from the caching implementation details. Spring Caching uses an application-level scope, so for a request-only memoization we need to take a DIY approach.
