+      <answer>
+        <p>
+          Apache Cocoon has a sophisticated cache. When running Forrest in dynamic
+          mode, the initial visitor will receive slower response. The very first
+          page served will cause Cocoon to cache the pipelines. Later requests
+          will re-use those cached components and add others to the cache.
+          A good technique is to warm up the cache after the forrest webapp has
+          been re-started. Requesting the front page alone will populate the
+          cache with the common items used for other pages. Using a spider
+          such as wget, will warm up everything.
+        </p>
+        <p>
+          The Cocoon cache and sitemaps can be tuned. See
+          <link href="">Cocoon Performance
+          and
+          <link href="">CocoonPerformance</link>
+          and the "Object Stores" section of main/webapp/WEB-INF/forrest-core.xconf
+        </p>
+        <p>Responsiveness can be further enhanced by utilising a transparent proxy
server, e.g. Apache HTTP Server as a frontend. See <link href="">CocoonAndApacheModProxy</link>.
