JPACacheStore should not load all entities in memory


      Today several methods use getResultList() and load either all keys or all entities for a given entity type in- memory at the same time.
      This will likely blow up for big tables.

      There are two solutions:

        1. Use Hibernate's specific features

      Hibernate ORM has a session.scroll() method that offers a FORWARD_ONLY scrollable result set. You can then load data and regularly (every 100?) clear the session before hitting the next result. This will diminish greatly the memory pressure.

        1. Use a window model

      get the number of entities in the table select count
      Then use setFirstResult / setMaxResults to navigate the data with a sliding window and clear the session every time you move the window.
      This won't be as efficient as Hibernate ORM's specific approach but will do the work except on database that don't support the ability to start the results at the nth element. Look up Hibernate dialects for more info.
