We decided to leave out caching functionality in the prototype version. Although the caching of recently requested pages (or also pre-caching of popular ones) should largely increase the server's runtime performance, we found out that even without our system produces quite passable results regarding request- and response-time, respectively. In the future, we plan to implement the caching functionality as a separate module that may be ''plugged in'' the server when needed.
