I am trying to develop an application using OL. In my code I am using base maps of google , yahoo etc. For this I am including the link in the script,this means that I am connecting to respective server(google,yahoo) etc every time through internet connection(I think this is what including the links in scripts mean). But sometimes when I select Yahoo maps , it takes a lot of time to load and in some cases it doesn't load at all. So for a better response time my idea is to use caching concept and store these maps in my memory using cookies etc.... But I donno whether Its possible to do this or not.So will this caching concept work?
Are there any other better ways to get good response time with loading of maps???? or How can I load maps better? Your suggestion are much valuable.
