Title: System and method for dynamic caching of data connections

Abstract: An integrated network and method for managing cached connections are provided. The integrated network includes one or more Web server clients in communication with one or more data servers that allow the Web server clients to request data over a communication channel. To facilitate repeated data requests, an individual Web server client requests that one or more communication channels be cached. The data server processes the Web server client request based on varying criteria. Upon the instantiation of a cached connection, both the Web server client and the data server may maintain the cached connections.
