WMLScript under Orange
Posted on 2005-05-04
I'm considering using WMLScript in my app.
As far as I know, when calling a WMLScript function, the mobile should only fetch the wmls page from the server on the first call, and then take it from the browser's cache on the next calls.
However, this is not the case under Orange UK or Orange Israel or any other Orange I suppose.
Looking at the IIS logs, I see that when going through Orange WAP gateways the phone keeps going to the server to fetch the wmls file.
Did anyone ever encounter this problem? Is there any workaround?
It it crucial for me since my app is designed for a very large number of users and I can't afford going to the server on every call to a function. (even it it's just a request for validating the date of the file)
