Deprecation: #88366 - Default caching framework cache names changed

See Issue #88366

Description

TYPO3’s internal Caching Framework has several caches already shipped with TYPO3 Core.

The caches have been renamed for convenience and for newcomers to overcome another “speciality” of TYPO3 which was due to legacy and integration reasons back in TYPO3 4.3 when the Caching Framework was introduced.

The following caches have been renamed:

  • cache_core => core
  • cache_hash => hash
  • cache_pages => pages
  • cache_pagesection => pagesection
  • cache_runtime => runtime
  • cache_rootline => rootline
  • cache_imagesizes => imagesizes

The caches should now be accessed via $cacheManager->getCache('core') instead of $cacheManager->getCache('cache_core') - without the “cache_” prefix.

In addition, when the DatabaseBackend cache is used, the database tables do not have the cf_ prefix anymore, making it clearer for integrators and developers what the caches mean.

Impact

When accessing the cache with a “cache” prefix, a deprecation message is thrown.

Affected Installations

Any TYPO3 extension using the caching framework with the “cache_” prefix.

Migration

Remove the “cache_” prefix from the callers code.

In addition, run through the Database Table Analyzer of the Configuration module to re-create any database tables of the Caching Framework.
