Subject:   Why not use a caching proxy?

An even simpler method might be to configure an Apache or Squid server instance to cache the images, and make sure your application works through the proxy to do all communications with Amazon. Properly configured, that could also save you quite a bit of bandwidth on the initial XML requests themselves, as much of the product information should be static between requests.

  • Why not use a caching proxy?

    That's a great idea...though a bit more complicated (to me, anyway). There's definitely more than one way to cache this info. This article mentions ways to do it with scripting, but you could do it at the web server level as well. Also keep in mind that not everyone has this sort of access to the server--while anyone can throw some JavaScript into their HTML.
