    URLRequest caching

    Nial Giacomelli

      I'm using URLRequest to pull XML data from a third party service. I'm looking to refresh this information at set periods. I noticed that URLRequest comes with an inbuilt ability to cache requests, but I'm wondering if there's a way to control how long the caches remain 'valid'. Essentially, I'd like to expire caches after a certain number of minutes. Obviously I can code this behaviour myself, but don't want to reinvent the wheel.

       

      If I were to code my own cache invalidation code, would simply turning off caching before making the URLRequest suffice, or will I have to actively flush the cache, somehow?
