Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-994) cache does not allow client to override origin-specified freshness using max-stale
Date Sun, 12 Sep 2010 11:45:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-994?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12908446#action_12908446

Jonathan Moore commented on HTTPCLIENT-994:

Hi Oleg,

Good question. Currently the CachedResponseSuitabilityChecker is where we decide whether a
specific cache entry can be used to satisfy a given request. This is the class that could
be replaced or extended to provide alternative (but allowed) caching policies, like heuristic
caching, for example.  

Please take a look, but I am pretty certain that all the methods on HttpCacheEntry now are
either calculations whose definitions are given in the RFC (apparent age, freshness lifetime,
whether it can be revalidated, etc.) or related to MUST-level requirements (treating malformed
Expires headers as 'already stale'). 

Also, CacheValidityPolicy, where all these methods used to live, had almost no interesting
state, and all it's methods took an HttpCacheEntry as an argument; it seemed pretty clear
these two classes "wanted" to be merged. :)

> According to the RFC, the default freshness lifetime is supposed to be the LEAST restrictive
of that specified by the origin, the client, and the cache. Right now, a client can't use
'max-stale' to relax the freshness constraints to get a cache hit without validation occuring
