Title: Re-using asynchronous server-side results generated for a request context of one client to satisfy a request context of a different client

Abstract: The present invention provides a solution for sharing server generated output to satisfy requests for content originated by different clients. More specifically, a server side resource can analyze a content request and compare this request to a set of active request handling operations. When one of the active operations is capable of satisfying a discrete portion of the content request, an association can be established between the active operation and the content request. When the active operation produces results, these results are returned to satisfy a request of an original client as well as to satisfy a request of a client that issued the content request. The solution can be implemented in a variety of environments, including one where asynchronous server-side operations are conducted by different server-side resources for a single request context.
