Hej all
I have developed WML application which can view images taken with a webcam and placed on my TOMCAT server. WML file which shows picture is programmed so it refreshes it self: like

<card id="realtimecamera1" title="realtime kamera 1" ontimer="realcamera1.wml">
<p><b>Camera 1<b/><p/>
<timer value="200"/>

Så it is supposed to refresh itself...on timer..and it does..
But I get same picture on my cellphone becouse of a cache in it.
On cellphone I can not turn cach off.
How to solve this så I get new picture when it refreshitself. I have also tried to write Mets tags... like

    <meta forua="true" http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="max-age=0"/>

but it seems that browser of my sony ericsson T610 does not support that... I have a same problem...   :o(

Anyone who could help me... I need simple solution

hm... I have had similar problems... use to add a random value to the picture address to solve it... like this:

<img src="myimage.jpg?random235235"/>

You will need to use a server side script language for your page thought.... like php, asp, jsp, perl or similar.

Hope this is a solution you are satisfied with?

WAP dows not handle that Like deadlock you will need a
REAL browser that can handle other than wap

I don't know if my <img > code was wrong for wap, it was a while since I did any wap programming. BUT the method I explained using a random value added to the images path works very well. I have done this myself before so I know this this works!
