Class Overview

Caches URLConnection responses.

The system's default cache can be set using setDefault(ResponseCache). If getUseCaches() returns true, URLConnection will use the default response cache, if one has been set.

Although URLConnection will always call put(URI, URLConnection), the specific ResponseCache implementation gets to decide what will actually be cached, and for how long.
