StencilCache Sample: Uses the ATL Server Stencil Cache 

Download sample

Demonstrates how to use the stencil cache service in an ATL Server Web application.

The StencilCache sample illustrates how to:

  • Get and set the lifetime of the cache entries.

  • Use the statistics provided by the cache service.

The sample demonstrates the behavior of the stencil cache (also called the server response file cache) by writing a server response file to disk and changing it whenever the Touch button is clicked. This file is returned as part of the frameset displayed in the sample so that the cache is exercised. The statistics related to the cache are displayed in another page in the frameset.
