This article presents a browser cache solution to reduce server requests, improve the speed of auto-suggest, and implement dynamic SKU suggestions on the quick order page of a WebSphere Commerce® starter store. WebSphere Commerce V7.2 includes a search box in the site navigation header that uses the Apache Solr search to drive the auto-suggest feature. This feature requires calls to the search server to retrieve suggested keywords for every user keystroke. This browser cache solution reduces the performance impact on the server that is caused by the Ajax calls to the Apache Solr search server for every keystroke.
