Subject Re: [s2] Struts head tag KILLS (> 10s) page load time
Date Mon, 25 Sep 2000 14:26:50 GMT
```Apparently cache is another attribute placed into djConfig array?

if we take a look at latest 0.9.0 release of
dojo-release-0.9.0/dojo/tests/back.html which contains sample djConfig

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
// Dojo configuration
djConfig = {
//debugAtAllCosts: true, //Don't normally need this in applications.
isDebug: true,
dojoIframeHistoryUrl: "../../resources/iframe_history.html", //for
xdomain
preventBackButtonFix: false,
cache:true  //presumably we can set our cache param here but where is it
referenced???
};
</script>

This article suggests starting FF in safe mode as some FF extensions cause
http://manual.dojotoolkit.org/WikiHome/DojoDotBook/Book122

the article also suggests bypassing eval with dojo.writeIncludes() with
DebugAtAllCosts=true where
"Each of the required javascript filenames is added into a list of pending
files that need to be loaded (the list is in order so that dependent files
are loaded in the correct order). script tags are appended with src
attributes set to the js files that need to be loaded. The script tags cause
the files to be loaded by the browser: "

as in this example..
dojo.require("dojo.myModule");
dojo.hostenv.writeIncludes(); // no eval will happen instead dependent
files will loaded in 'correct order'

Suggestions for JS Tools?
