    Source Code:
    This plugin provides an API to quickly resolve player names to UUIDs and vice versa. It uses an in memory cache as first level and a second level file or MySQL cache. For entries not found in the cache Mojang can be queried. All querys can be done asynchronously to avoid a negative performance impact.

    If you have a network of multiple servers you can use the same MySQL database for all instances so cached results are shared.

    This API is only useful if you have plugins using it on your server. There is no reason to have it on the server when no plugin uses it.
