Learn how HTTP caching works, and which headers are involved in determining whether a response from the API is cacheable.
- [Instructor] Caching is an important piece…of any RESTful API.…If resources and API responses are designed to be cached,…clients won't need to make requests to the server again…for the same resource while the cache is fresh.…This reduces the load on your server…and can increase both the response time of the API…and the perceived response time…in clients with cache responses.…Caching involves both the client and the server.…On the server side,…your application can let clients know…that responses are cacheable in a few ways.…The first is by returning the cache control header…with a response.…
The cache control header can specify the number of seconds…a cache copy should be considered fresh…or it can be used to disable caching entirely…by setting the no-cache and no-store directives.…The Expires header can also be used to let the client know…how long to cache a request.…If the date of the response…is less than the timestamp in the header,…the response is still fresh…and it can be returned from the cache.…If a response includes both Cache-Control and Expires,…
