getLastModified(..)

I was wondering if someone could please help me understand the intended use of the getLastModified(..) method in HttpServlet as it relates to caching.

How does the value returned by getLastModified(..) inform HTTP caching if my servlet should or should not be delivered from cache?


Fun programming etcetera!

Should have googled more thoroughly before I posted:

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
