Presentation: "REST & Caching: Web Services, Accelerated"

Time: Tuesday 16:15 - 17:15

Location: Filuren


One of the most prominent benefits of applying building services using RESTful HTTP is the support for caching. In this session, we'll explore the two caching models supported by HTTP, take a look at how to incorporate them into a RESTful design, and show some examples of advanced infrastructure topologies that exploit HTTP's caching as much as possible without being too intrusive. Topics covered include validation and expiration, different kinds of ETags, external client side and server side caching, Edge Side Includes (ESI) and invalidation.

Keywords: REST, architecture, web, web service, intermediary, http, performance, caching, optimization
