module ActionController #:nodoc:
  module Caching
    # Page caching is an approach to caching where the entire action output of is stored as a HTML file that the web server
    # can serve without going through Action Pack. This is the fastest way to cache your content as opposed to going dynamically
    # through the process of generating the content. Unfortunately, this incredible speed-up is only available to stateless pages
    # where all visitors are treated the same. Content management systems -- including weblogs and wikis -- have many pages that are
    # a great fit for this approach, but account-based systems where people log in and manipulate their own data are often less
    # likely candidates.
    #
    # Specifying which actions to cache is done through the <tt>caches_page</tt> class method:
    #
    #   class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
    #     caches_page :show, :new
    #   end
    #
    # This will generate cache files such as <tt>weblog/show/5.html</tt> and <tt>weblog/new.html</tt>,
    # which match the URLs used to trigger the dynamic generation. This is how the web server is able
    # pick up a cache file when it exists and otherwise let the request pass on to Action Pack to generate it.
    #
    # Expiration of the cache is handled by deleting the cached file, which results in a lazy regeneration approach where the cache
    # is not restored before another hit is made against it. The API for doing so mimics the options from +url_for+ and friends:
    #
    #   class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
    #     def update
    #       List.update(params[:list][:id], params[:list])
    #       expire_page :action => "show", :id => params[:list][:id]
    #       redirect_to :action => "show", :id => params[:list][:id]
    #     end
    #   end
    #
    # Additionally, you can expire caches using Sweepers that act on changes in the model to determine when a cache is supposed to be
    # expired.
    #
    # == Setting the cache directory
    #
    # The cache directory should be the document root for the web server and is set using <tt>Base.page_cache_directory = "/document/root"</tt>.
    # For Rails, this directory has already been set to Rails.public_path (which is usually set to <tt>RAILS_ROOT + "/public"</tt>). Changing
    # this setting can be useful to avoid naming conflicts with files in <tt>public/</tt>, but doing so will likely require configuring your
    # web server to look in the new location for cached files.
    #
    # == Setting the cache extension
    #
    # Most Rails requests do not have an extension, such as <tt>/weblog/new</tt>. In these cases, the page caching mechanism will add one in
    # order to make it easy for the cached files to be picked up properly by the web server. By default, this cache extension is <tt>.html</tt>.
    # If you want something else, like <tt>.php</tt> or <tt>.shtml</tt>, just set Base.page_cache_extension. In cases where a request already has an
    # extension, such as <tt>.xml</tt> or <tt>.rss</tt>, page caching will not add an extension. This allows it to work well with RESTful apps.
