AJAX and Component Actions

If you’ve built these super-smart ajaxified components, ‘ware the backtracking cache. Component actions rely on the backtracking cache to map numbers: to a specific page state. 1 Ajax-savvy page, followed by 20 ajax requests might burn through the backtracking cache. 

In general, you should setup your pages to cache, and your ajax responses NOT to cache. Alternatively, if your Ajax actions are also direct actions, you won’t have anything to worry about.
