we are developing web applications using Macromedia  Flex. We have a problem whereby the server that flex sits on automatically caches swf files so when we upload changes and go to run the old cahched version so changes arent seen.

Any ideas on the fix

Are you using a scripting language to create the html page your swf sits in? If so you could add a random number to the swf embed path.

Something like this...

mymovie.swf?nocache=12345

The number would need to be randomly generated each time the page is requested. With php you could use rand()
