Overview

Currently the tile service has no support for http cache semantics.

Motivation

HTTP caching is a very simple way of increasing performance.

Proxy servers cannot currently cache MapGuide GETTILEIMAGE responses, without custom configuration and overrides

Proposed Solution

Adding cache headers to tile service.

This would require support adding the source tile timestamp to the HTTP header and then support returning 304's as required

Implications

None

Test Plan

TBD

Funding/Resources?

TBD

Trac Tickets

Add proper cache headers & file date to GETTILEIMAGE response
