Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1361) stale-while-revalidate should work also without last-modified nor etag
Date Thu, 30 May 2013 12:02:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1361?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13670270#comment-13670270
] 

Jon Moore commented on HTTPCLIENT-1361:
---------------------------------------

Just talked to @mnot on Twitter, and he clarified: "yeah, it's a bad name. The intent was
not to confine it to validation; it should work equally well for responses without."

So I'm +1 on this improvement.

> Currently stale-while-revalidate mechanism works only if the cache entry contains a last-modified
or a etag header. It should work also for cache entries with expires or max-age.
> The specification is not very clear about what a revalidation is, but in the example
there is no last-modified nor etag, only a cache-control: max-age
> http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5861
> If everybody agrees, I can work on a fix.
