Subject RE: Compression and SSL

Well, we already have filters in place to make sure our images, javascript, and other statics
go out as cacheable.  In fact, the only thing that should not be cached at this point are
the results of the jsp pages themselves.
Did see something recently about combining images into a single file, and then having something
on the client end pick out what it needed per page.  Didn't read it all, since it sounds like
it requires a bit of coding to support it.  Might be something to tell the dev team about.
 I'm just looking at it from changes that an admin can implement.

There are probably tons on Google, if you look for "website 
optimi[z,s]ation" or the like.

Personally, I have found that a very large proportion of websites on the 
WWW are slow because their designers just /don't think/.  If loading 
each page requires 10 or more requests to the server and you fail to 
organise stuff so that it can be cached by the browser, then you should 
not be surprised that your site feels slow.  But it never ceases to 
amaze me how many sites ignore the simple common-sense principles.
I would bet that carefully examining what you are actually sending in 
your pages and cleaning it up would yeld more benefits, faster, than 
playing around with protocols, compression and the like.
