OpenLayers introduced client side caching in Version 2.11 and 2.12, along side their performance improvements for other map functions. Needless to say, these functions are intertwined and rely on each other so I don't think I can just pull out the caching code and use it with version 2.10.
Is there any way to force the client browser to cache the map tiles and re-use them on subsequent requests?
I am hoping this can be done for my WMS TileCache tiles retrieved from my ms4w Apache server.
Here is a live example on my host: http://www.spatialanalysis.ca/cachemytiles/ Check out the network panel for my WMS layer and then check the OSM base layer. The OSM base layer returns "from cache" tiles once they've been loaded once. I have a feeling this is an Apache setup option.
