Andrzej Bialecki  commented on NUTCH-501:

ObjectCache should support caching objects that fall under the same key, bu=
t are differently configured. This situation occurs when running in "local"=
 mode, and using Nutch tools to perform several workflows with different co=
nfigs - in such cases there is a single instance of ObjectCache created wit=
hin a JVM, and using this implementation of ObjectCache objects coming from=
 different configuration contexts would be set/retrieved in wrong contexts.

This is very much similar to the issue in NUTCH-169. If we use ObjectCache =
the way you proposed we would revert to the situation before NUTCH-169.

I propose to modify ObjectCache to store multiple objects under the same ke=
y, additionally indexed by Configuration id - and to modify all ObjectCache=
 methods to take a Configuration parameter.

Currently Configuration instances don't have a unique id (unless you count =
a job id available in mapred.job.id - but this becomes available only after=
 you submit a job), and they don't implement any sensible hashCode(), so it=
's difficult to produce a key uniquely tied to a config instance. The way N=
utch uses Configuration, it's always created either via NutchConfiguration.=
create() or new NutchJob(getConf()) - we could generate unique object.cache=
.id property there, and use it later on in ObjectCache to retrieve the righ=
t set of key/value pairs. Similarly, if ObjectCache gets a Configuration in=
stance without a unique key, it could create one, stick it into Configurati=
on, and use it from now on.

The problem with this approach is that over time the ObjectCache would accu=
mulate values from past, no longer valid contexts.
