The inherent structure of applications defined with hypertext markup languages is that of a graph. Push-enabled protocols like HTTP/2 drive the need for solutions allowing the server to traverse this graph and preemptively push related resources to the client. In addition to this, user interface adaptation to various mobile devices belongs to the server's tasks. Taking into account the diversities in client hardware, software and user preferences we designed a solution to reuse once adapted resources for similar configurations. In this paper we propose a new caching architecture for these purposes that is based on the application of graph database systems. With different approaches we show how to increase their performance when used as resource caches. In our evaluation the proposed implementation reduced the amount of adapted resources by 89%. In a real-world scenario it achieved twice the throughput of a traditional implementation and used 40% less heap memory.
