It does not make sense to cache certain types of objects. For example,
it doesn't make sense to cache queries, since the result of a query
might change each time for some services. The following rules are used
to determine which objects not to cache:
- Any HTTP URLs that do not use the 'GET' REQUEST_METHOD
- Any HTTP URLs that use a CGI program denoted by a ``
character in the URL, or ``
/cgi-bin/'' in the URL.
- Any HTTP URLs with the Authorization tag in the MIME request
header (this is used as a response to ``401'' messages when an HTTP
server asks for a password before retrieving a file).
- Any ``401'' HTTP responses.
