Hi,

With this configuration we have a servlet which basically retrieves the resource file like (image,css,xml files) many times from different URLs

Way:1 (using URLConnection )
=============================
URL siteURL = new URL(urlPath);
URLConnection siteConn = siteURL.openConnection();
siteConn.connect();
InputStreamReader isReader =new InputStreamReader(siteConn.getInputStream());

int i = -1;
StringBuffer respBuff = new StringBuffer();

while((i=isReader.read()) != -1) {
respBuff.append(String.valueOf((char)i));
}
ServletOutputStream sos = response.getOutputStream();
sos.write(sBuffer.toString().getBytes());

Way:2 (using URL )
==================
DataInputStream dis = new DataInputStream(url.openStream());
while ( dis.read(bytes) != -1) {
sos.write(bytes);
}

Problem:
=========
Actually the servlet is invoked many times for the same resources again and again. We want to avoid that and we want a way to configure a particular list of resource files(cache only which has extensions xml, gif etc) to be cached automatically by Apache.

Or other way is we can also pass an extra parameter along with the URL which decides whether this has to be cached or not. Like

http://192.165.121.101/folder/imgs/res1.xml?cache=true
this should be cached by Apache

http://192.165.121.101/folder/imgs/res2.xml?cache=false
this should not be cached by Apache

Any solution?

Thanks in Advance,
Govarthanan
