A short video showing how you can test and implement Zend_Cache on a class that makes a really slow request (like a web service call).
This is part 4 in a four part series on Google Docs and Google maps. While this example shows how to cache a Class to a file, you could easily modify the code to work with other caching backends such as a memory-based caching engine or something like Zend Optimizer or APC.
