Procedure documentationStoring Data Objects in the ICM Server Cache Locate this document in the navigation structure


When programming your Web application, you can store large data BLOBs (binary large objects) in the ICM server cache before requesting the page for a first time. As a result you can avoid long wait times with the first call, since the object does not have to be fetched from the database (MIME repository).


In your Web application, call the SERVER_CACHE_UPLOAD ABAP method of the CL_HTTP_SERVER class (see the section on the IF_HTTP_SERVER interface). It is processed exactly as described as when using the ICM server clipboard.


Your data BLOBs are in the ICM server cache before the browser requests them for the first time. As a result, the response is quick and does not affect the back end (application server and database).
