Java Beans-style configuration for a CachingHttpClient. Any class in the caching module that has configuration options should take a CacheConfig argument in one of its constructors. A CacheConfig instance has sane and conservative defaults, so the easiest way to specify options is to get an instance and then set just the options you want to modify from their defaults.

N.B. This class is only for caching-specific configuration; to configure the behavior of the rest of the client, configure the HttpClient used as the "backend" for the CachingHttpClient.

Cache configuration can be grouped into the following categories:

Cache size. If the backend storage supports these limits, you can specify the maximum number of cache entries as well as the maximum cacheable response body size.

Public/private caching. By default, the caching module considers itself to be a shared (public) cache, and will not, for example, cache responses to requests with Authorization headers or responses marked with Cache-Control: private. If, however, the cache is only going to be used by one logical "user" (behaving similarly to a browser cache), then you will want to turn off the shared cache setting.

303 caching. RFC2616 explicitly disallows caching 303 responses; however, the HTTPbis working group says they can be cached if explicitly indicated in the response headers and permitted by the request method. (They also indicate that disallowing 303 caching is actually an unintended spec error in RFC2616). This behavior is off by default, to err on the side of a conservative adherence to the existing standard, but you may want to enable it.

Weak ETags on PUT/DELETE If-Match requests. RFC2616 explicitly prohibits the use of weak validators in non-GET requests, however, the HTTPbis working group says while the limitation for weak validators on ranged requests makes sense, weak ETag validation is useful on full non-GET requests; e.g., PUT with If-Match. This behavior is off by default, to err on the side of a conservative adherence to the existing standard, but you may want to enable it.

Heuristic caching. Per RFC2616, a cache may cache certain cache entries even if no explicit cache control headers are set by the origin. This behavior is off by default, but you may want to turn this on if you are working with an origin that doesn't set proper headers but where you still want to cache the responses. You will want to enable heuristic caching, then specify either a default freshness lifetime and/or a fraction of the time since the resource was last modified. See Sections 13.2.2 and 13.2.4 of the HTTP/1.1 RFC for more details on heuristic caching.

Background validation. The cache module supports the stale-while-revalidate directive of RFC5861, which allows certain cache entry revalidations to happen in the background. You may want to tweak the settings for the minimum and maximum number of background worker threads, as well as the maximum time they can be idle before being reclaimed. You can also control the size of the queue used for revalidations when there aren't enough workers to keep up with demand.

Returns lifetime coefficient used in heuristic freshness caching.


setHeuristicCoefficient

@Deprecated
public void setHeuristicCoefficient(float heuristicCoefficient)

getAsynchronousWorkerIdleLifetimeSecs

Deprecated. (4.3) use CacheConfig.Builder.

Sets the current maximum idle lifetime in seconds for a background revalidation worker thread. If a worker thread is idle for this long, and there are more than the core number of worker threads alive, the worker will be reclaimed.
