I'm currently working on a PHP project and I've come across an issue regarding caching or performance optimization using an enumeration. I'm quite new to PHP and I'm not sure how to handle this situation efficiently.
Basically, I have an enumeration which consists of a fixed set of values. It is used throughout my application for various purposes. However, I've noticed that every time I need to use these values, the application queries the database to fetch them. This seems like an unnecessary overhead and affects the performance of my application.
I'm wondering if there's a way to optimize this process by caching the enumeration values once they are fetched from the database. Is there a recommended approach or best practice to handle caching or performance optimization when dealing with an enumeration in PHP?
Any guidance or suggestions on how to tackle this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!
