Subject [jira] Updated: (HTTPCLIENT-997) cache module should handle out-of-order validations properly and unconditionally refresh
Date Tue, 21 Sep 2010 14:46:33 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-997?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Jonathan Moore updated HTTPCLIENT-997:

    Attachment: unconditional-retry-validate.patch

The attached patch addresses this issue. In addition, there were a couple of bugs that were

1. When we get a potentially cacheable response outside of the validation path, we likewise
MUST check for out-of-order Date headers and not replace existing entries with older-dated

2. Client requests with 'no-cache' or 'no-store' were causing invalidation of existing cache
entries, which is not actually required by the protocol.

This patch is contributed to the ASF with the permission of my employer.

> There is a protocol recommendation that when we attempt to revalidate a cache entry,
but we receive a response that has a Date header that's actually *older* than that of our
current entry, we SHOULD revalidate again unconditionally with either max-age=0 or no-cache
(since some upstream cache would appear to be out-of-date).
