### Null vs. Errors

I am not particularly a fan of  JCS (Jakarta Cache System) as I find ehcache code very clean and simple. But I have to say the author has some good comments on the site:

Nulls vs. Errors

I started to support ObjectNotFoundExceptions for failed gets but the overhead and cumbersome coding needed to surround a simple get method is ridiculous. Instead the JCS return null.

For having seen too many times the ObjectNotFoundException "pattern", I can only agree!
