SharedWorkerGlobalScope.applicationCache

Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

Warning: Application Cache is deprecated as of Firefox 44, and is no longer available in insecure contexts from Firefox 60 onwards (bug 1354175, currently Nightly/Beta only). Don't use it to make offline websites — consider using service workers instead.

The applicationCache read-only property of the SharedWorkerGlobalScope interface returns the ApplicationCache object for the worker (see Using the application cache).

Syntax

var nameObj = self.applicationCache;

Value

An ApplicationCache.

Example

If a shared worker has an AppCache associated with it, you can return a reference to the cache using

self.applicationCache

from inside the shared worker.

Browser compatibility

BCD tables only load in the browser
