JCS can be used as a standalone API without using Turbine framework. JCS is actually part of Torque subproject which used to be under Turbine framework. It's now decoupled and a subproject of JCS jar file is not available as a separate file to download. To get the JAR, you need to download Torque release. Check out for release status and for downloading latest release.

    I downloaded from

    Inside the zip file, I found jcs-20030822.182132.jar

    Why is JCS embedded inside of Torque?

    Is JCS dependent upon Torque?

    What is the status of the Turbine JCS project? It's now part of Torque, but all docs still point to the page (which is completely outdated apparently) and not to the page.

    Also, the JCS jar is indeed included in the Torque download, as you mention. However, I can't find the source code anywhere on the Apache site.

    Is all this confusion temporary or is JCS being fased out as a project?

      JCS is not being phased out. There is some debate about where it should be. Right now it is a subproject of Turbine. It is completely standalone, not dependent on Turbine or Torque. The best thing to do is to check out the JCS project and build it.

        I I can't find the link to download Java Caching System (JCS) at Jakata site. I downloaded Turbine, but can't find JCS classes such as: org.apache.stratum.jcs.JCS;

        1. Is JCS moved to other project?
        2. What is its status?
        3. Any experience to share?
