At our company, we use the DAO pattern for all data access.

We have a DAO that communicates with a remote ERP system using a custom XML protocol.

We are considering the use of OpenSymphony OSCache 2.x for caching some of the XML responses.

Can you suggest a design or implementation strategy for us?

We are thinking about using the Decorator pattern to "decorate" the XML DAO with caching capabilities.
