/**
 * This factory constructs a cache from a given or default configuration set.
 * <p/>
 * Typical usage would be:
 * <p/>
 * <pre>
 *   CacheFactory factory = DefaultCacheFactory.getInstance();
 *   Cache cache = factory.createCache("replSync-service.xml"); // expects this file to be in classpath
 *   cache.stop();
 * </pre>
 * Factory methods provide options for creating a cache using
 * <ul>
 * <li>default configuration settings</li>
 * <li>an XML file containing the configuration</li>
 * <li>a constructed and populated {@link org.jboss.cache.config.Configuration} object</li>
 * </ul>
 * In addition, methods provide anadditional option to create and return a cache without starting it.
