Setup Memcached on Heroku

Add memcachedcloud to your project:
heroku addons:add memcachedcloud

1. Setup Memcached Configuration
2. Setup Memcached Service

1. Setup Memcached Configuration

package com.example.cache;


import net.spy.memcached.AddrUtil;
import net.spy.memcached.ConnectionFactoryBuilder;
import net.spy.memcached.MemcachedClient;
import net.spy.memcached.auth.AuthDescriptor;
import net.spy.memcached.auth.PlainCallbackHandler;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Bean;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Configuration;

public class CacheConfiguration {
	public MemcachedClient memcachedCloudConfiguration() {
		try {
		    AuthDescriptor ad = new AuthDescriptor(new String[] { "PLAIN" },
		        new PlainCallbackHandler(System.getenv("MEMCACHEDCLOUD_USERNAME"), System.getenv("MEMCACHEDCLOUD_PASSWORD")));

		    MemcachedClient mc = new MemcachedClient(
		              new ConnectionFactoryBuilder()
		    return mc;
		} catch (IOException ex) {
		    // the Memcached client could not be initialized.
		return null;

2. Setup Memcached Service

package com.example.cache;

import java.math.BigInteger;
import java.util.Collection;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;

import net.spy.memcached.MemcachedClient;

import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Import;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Service;

import com.example.model.Customer;
import com.example.service.CustomerService;

public class CacheCustomerService implements CustomerService{

	@Autowired MemcachedClient memCachedClient;
	public Customer getCustomerById(BigInteger id) {
		return (Customer) memCachedClient.get(String.valueOf(id));

	public void createCustomer(String fn, String ln) {
		memCachedClient.set("customerKey", 3600, new Customer(fn, ln));

	public void deleteCustomer(BigInteger id) {

	public void createCustomer(Customer newCustomer) {
		memCachedClient.set("customerKey", 3600, newCustomer);
