We are now directing members to click on the blue button versus the old way of logging on.There will be background changes to services that will cause the old way to be inactive. READ MORE Although it seems like yesterday, in 2016, we celebrated our 65th anniversary and in February held our annual MEMBERstrong event.At this point, the browser could dispatch a new request and fetch the new full response.
First, the browser checks the local cache and finds the previous response.
Unfortunately, the browser can't use the previous response because the response has now expired.
In the preceding example, the client automatically provides the ETag token in the "If-None-Match" HTTP request header.
The server checks the token against the current resource.
Find your favorite server in the list, look for the appropriate settings, and copy/confirm that your server is configured with the recommended settings.
From a performance optimization perspective, the best request is a request that doesn't need to communicate with the server: a local copy of the response allows you to eliminate all network latency and avoid data charges for the data transfer.
All you need to do is ensure that each server response provides the correct HTTP header directives to instruct the browser on when and for how long the browser can cache the response.
If you are using a Web View to fetch and display web content in your application, you might need to provide additional configuration flags to ensure that the HTTP cache is enabled, its size is set to a reasonable number to match your use case, and the cache is persisted.
For example, in the above exchange, the server returns a 1024-byte response, instructs the client to cache it for up to 120 seconds, and provides a validation token ("x234dff") that can be used after the response has expired to check if the resource has been modified.
Assume that 120 seconds have passed since the initial fetch and the browser has initiated a new request for the same resource.
As a result, the ability to cache and reuse previously fetched resources is a critical aspect of optimizing for performance.
