Caching Example

Here is an example cache element in the sun-web.xml file:

<cache max-capacity="8192" timeout="60">
<cache-helper name="myHelper" class-name="MyCacheHelper"/>
	<timeout name="timefield">120</timeout>
	<url-pattern> /catalog/* </url-pattern>
	<!-- cache the best selling category; cache the responses to
	   -- this resource only when the given parameters exist. Cache
	   -- only when the catalog parameter has 'lilies' or 'roses'
	   -- but no other catalog varieties:
	  -- /orchard/catalog?best&category='lilies'
	  -- /orchard/catalog?best&category='roses'
	  -- but not the result of
	   -- /orchard/catalog?best&category='wild'
	<constraint-field name='best' scope='request.parameter'/>
	<constraint-field name='category' scope='request.parameter'>
		<value> roses </value>
		<value> lilies </value>
	 <!-- Specify that a particular field is of given range but the
	   -- field doesn't need to be present in all the requests -->
	<constraint-field name='SKUnum' scope='request.parameter'>
		<value match-expr='in-range'> 1000 - 2000 </value>
	<!-- cache when the category matches with any value other than
	   -- a specific value -->
	<constraint-field name="category" scope="request.parameter>
		<value match-expr="equals" cache-on-match-failure="true">
	<servlet-name> InfoServlet </servlet-name>
