Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1250) Allow query string to be ignored when determining cacheability for HTTP 1.0 responses
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2012 21:01:03 GMT
Don Brown created HTTPCLIENT-1250:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: Allow query string to be ignored when determining cacheability for HTTP
1.0 responses
                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1250
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1250
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Cache
    Affects Versions: 4.2.1
            Reporter: Don Brown


For HTTP 1.0 responses, the cache uses a heuristic that checks for the presence of a query
string, and if found, disables caching regardless of any explicit cache headers.  This should
be configurable to allow a client to disable this heuristic.

In my case, I have a squid proxy in front of my server that is turning all responses into
HTTP 1.0 responses, and thereby, disabling the cache for all outgoing requests that involve
a query string.  Ignoring the query string will work great for me as I use the cache in a
controlled environment where the caching behavior is documented and understood by clients.
