SharedWorkerGlobalScope.applicationCache

Important: 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.
