Add support for browser-side caching of webapi resources.
Review Request #2432 — Created June 25, 2011 and submitted — Latest diff uploaded
Add support for browser-side caching of webapi resources. WebAPIResource now has a few new properties and methods for handling browser-side caching. Resources can handle Last Modified timestamps or ETags, and generate them either based on fields or through custom functions. This can speed up access to resources, improving performance both client-side and server-side.
Tested with the accompanying Review Board change, both through unit tests and checking responses on resources using Firebug. This tested auto-generated ETags, Last Modified timestamps, and custom functions.
