Subject [jira] Created: (MYFACES-2864) Allow caching of resources by the default external context impl
Date Fri, 06 Aug 2010 15:06:15 GMT
Allow caching of resources by the default external context impl

                 Key: MYFACES-2864
             Project: MyFaces Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: General
    Affects Versions: 2.0.2-SNAPSHOT
            Reporter: Michael Concini
            Assignee: Michael Concini

We've seen in our testing significant improvements in performance by caching the results of
getResource() and getResourcePaths() calls.  Adding this caching has led to about a 30% increase
in throughput on an older JSP application, and a doubling of throughput on JSF2/facelets applications
that utilize templating and composite components.  This testing was all done on WAS so gains
could be different on other servers depending on the behavior of their servlet containers.

In the patch I'm attaching, it currently sets that the default for the caching is enabled
if the project stage is production and I've defaulted the cache size to 500 entries.  I've
created two context params that allow for overriding the size and/or disabling the cache outright.

There might be a few cases where this will need to be disabled.  Most prominently would be
anyone who adds or removes files to a production environment.    This could cause problems
for an application that generates dynamic content on disk instead of in memory, although I
don't know if that is common enough that we'd want to turn it off by default given the gains
that the majority of users would see.

Please review the patch and let me know if there should be any tweaks or if anyone feels strongly
one way or the other about whether it should be enabled or disabled by default. I'll plan
on committing Monday based on any consensus.
