How to force browser to reload an applet?
Posted on 1998-12-21
Even though I've set the Netscape 4.07 and IE4.0 options to reload each time, neither browser detects that my Java applet has been updated on the server.
The applet classes are built directly into the server directories, so each time I rebuild an applet, I'd like to just hit the browser "Reload" (or "Refresh") to see the changes. But it's necessary to restart the browser each time.
I want this just for speed of debugging -- not for the final release.
The "home" HTML page never changes, just the applet it loads. But even when I change the date of the home page, "reload" doesn't refresh the page with the updated applet.
Thanks in advance.
