Hello,
How to clear cache in browser from java applet (through coding). For example suppose i have wtitten a applet and put it into web server. Now anyone has accessed from browser. Now if i am changing something in applet code the current applet code may or may not be affected in that person's browser. beacause, browser always checks its local cache and then web server. So how i can clear browser cache buffer from applet code ?
Help me ( if possible send some source code)
Thanks...

this is browser dependant behaviour (metaknowlenge)

you can advise your users to use shift+Reload / Ctrl+Refresh if the want to be sure that they receive the latest applet version (but this doesn't work always too)

As you know, when you click on the "reload" button in Netscape, or "refresh" button on Explorer, the browser reloads the web page (and not from the cache).
Java classes however, in the above case, ARE taken from the cache. In order to force the browser to REALLY reload the classes, you hit "SHIFT-reload" on Netscape, or "CTRL-refresh" on Explorer.
