        // Set to expire far in the past.
        response.setHeader("Expires", "Sat, 6 May 1995 12:00:00 GMT");

        // Set standard HTTP/1.1 no-cache headers.
        response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate");

        // Set IE extended HTTP/1.1 no-cache headers (use addHeader).
        response.addHeader("Cache-Control", "post-check=0, pre-check=0");

        // Set standard HTTP/1.0 no-cache header.
        response.setHeader("Pragma", "no-cache");
%>

At the top of the jsp should (might) stop the user from caching it, so they will see the new copy every time...

Some versions of IE don't care at all, and some proxy servers will ignore these settings, thus screwing you up...

Then, you need to try putting dummy random into the URL line...

When you link to the URL for the page, make the url something like:

String url = "whatever.jsp?time=" + System.currentTimeMillis() ;

So that the URL is different every time, thereby fooling rubbish proxy servers :-)

So I just put this in my index.jsp and everytime index.jsp is visited it will be refreshed. Im using mozilla with apache tomcat.
