Proxy caching is an effective approach to reduce the response latency to client requests, web server load, and network traffic. Recently there has been a major shift in the usage of the Web. Emerging web applications require increasing amount of server-side processing. Current proxy protocols do not support caching and execution of web processing units. In this paper, we present a secure weblet environment, in which, processing units on web servers are implemented as weblets. These weblets can migrate from web servers to proxy servers to perform required computation and provide faster responses. With the weblet approach, higher proxy cache hit rate will be achieved due to the proxy capability in caching processing units.
