Cache-Control and Accept-Encoding support in Adobe AIR HTML Component

I am evaluating Adobe AIR's HTML component and trying to figure out what is supported.


I built the AIR app and had it point to


I notice that the requests to fetch JS,CSS from Adobe AIR do not include Accept-Encoding: gzip header.

Does Adobe AIR's HTML Component support Accept-Encoding : gzip header ?


I also noticed that even though the content served with far futures expiry, i.e. has Cache-Control: maxage={value} subsequent requests are being made and content is not served from the browser's cache.


I observed this accross the app restarts.


Can someone please clarify support of the two above Http headers ?


Thank you.
