A cache is a mechanism to shorten data access times, reduce latency, and improve input/output (I/O) speeds. Adaptive forms cache stores only HTML content and JSON structure of an adaptive form without saving any pre-filled data. It helps in reducing the time required to render an adaptive form or document on the client. It is designed specifically for adaptive forms and also supports adaptive documents.
While developing custom components, on the server used for development, keep the adaptive forms cache disabled.
In the edit configuration values dialog, specify the maximum number of forms or documents an instance of the AEM Forms server can cache in the Number of Adaptive Forms field. The default value is 100.
To disable the cache, set the value in the Number of Adaptive Forms field to 0. The cache is reset and all forms and documents are removed from the cache when you disable or change the cache configuration.
