Clear Cache on JSP WEB PAGE

Hi

I new to jsp and java but I need to know is there a way to my sure that when the user logout from the application that it clears the cache from the browser (FIREFox and IE). If there a script of meta tag to use that works 100%.

Also that values does not cache in my application. E.g. I have a link called Search Asset and i requires me to input a value e.g (NG123) and get my results. Now when I go to a second link called Transfer Asset and it populate the value automaticlly   (NG123). Is there a way on my jsp page to clear cache on every page

I don't know the Java code to do this exactly, but this is the C# code. It should just need to be converted. This will need to go on every page that you don't want cached.
System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Response.Cache.SetExpires(DateTime.Now.AddYears(-1));
System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Response.Cache.SetRevalidation(HttpCacheRevalidation.AllCaches);
System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Response.Cache.SetNoStore();
System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Response.Cache.SetNoServerCaching();
System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.NoCache);

Hi

I have placed tis in my LoginForm.jsp but when I log out and I want to log in back again I can still see that my username is cached
<%
//This is to disable caching
//There has to be a better way to do this
//See http://www.jguru.com/faq/view.jsp?EID=377&page=2 for details
response.setDateHeader("Expires", 0); //prevents caching at the proxy server
response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "private, no-store, no-cache,must-revalidate, max-stale=0"); //HTTP 1.1
response.addHeader("Cache-Control", "post-check=0, pre-check=0"); //IE Specific
response.setHeader("Pragma","no-cache"); //HTTP 1.0
%>
<%
   response.setHeader( "Pragma", "no-cache" );
   response.setHeader( "Cache-Control", "no-cache" );
   response.setDateHeader( "Expires", 0 );
   
%>

Simply add the cache control tags to your page[not to cache]

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>No Cache </title>

<META HTTP-EQUIV="CACHE-CONTROL" CONTENT="NO-CACHE">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="EXPIRES" CONTENT="01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="PRAGMA" CONTENT="NO-CACHE">

</head>
<body>

<% Hello!  The time is now <%= new java.util.Date() %>
</body>
</html>
