Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-427) Implement a cache to perform real request only when needed
Date Sat, 13 Feb 2010 16:28:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-427?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12833405#action_12833405

Mike Youngstrom commented on HTTPCLIENT-427:

This would be extremely useful in the case of restful service calls.  If http client could
emulate a browsers caching logic and then expose an api that that will allow developers to
plug this logic into their system's caching solution that would be awesome!!!!!  I've looked
around and couldn't find any other http library that offers such functionality.  Client side
caching could mark a big reason for frameworks such as CXF and Spring RestTemplate (provides
Commons Http Client) to add Http Components as an optional client.

This isn't really a case of HttpClient trying to be a browser.  It's a case for HttpClient
to taking advantage of standard http headers to provide a well understood caching model.
