Problem Description:
Coldfusion 11 uses Hibernate 4 in which CacheProviders are depreciated in favor of RegionFactory. CF11 does not provide a mechanism to specify a RegionFactory or even specify a cache provider other than EHCache. Any string other than EHCache will throw an error. 

This means that it is not possible to implement any second level other than the EHCache that ships with ColdFusion 11! The way that RegionFactory implementation seems a bit of a hack.

Steps to Reproduce:
Create a basic application with ORM enabled. Set the ormsettings.secondarycacheenabled to true and change the ormsettings.cacheprovider to be anything other than EHCache, for example Hashtable or fully qualified path to a RegionFactory class.

Actual Result:
An exception is thrown:

Detail	Supported cache provider is EhCache.
Message	Cache Provider Hashtable is not supported.

Expected Result:
Either set the ormsettings.cacheProvider to one of the documented ( providers or a fully qualified Fully name of the class for any other cache provider.

Any Workaround
none at present

This prevents us from using Couchbase/Memcached as our L2 cache provider, thus preventing us from upgrading to CF11 from CF9.1

This is huge for several of our clients who use Couchbase for 2nd level cache via existing memcached providers. I'd love to see a way to do this again. Here's a guide I wrote that works for CF9 and 10.

We are looking to implement L2 ORM caching with an existing couchbase setup to increase the performance of our applications running on CF 11

I want to use Couchbase as a secondary level cache provider for ORM

We are investigating this for Raijin.

And how is that investigation going? CF2016 is *well* into development now...

Will this fix also be back ported to CF11 as this affects current installations and customers? Also to confirm that the fix is to allow third party Hibernate L2 caching such as Couchebase to use RegionFactory instead of CacheProviders?
