Forcing the browser to download Java applets

I'm working on developing a Java applet and I'm running into the perpetual annoyance that every time I re-compile my code, the browser loads whatever old version of the applet is sitting around in Java's cache rather than the new one. Is there any way, short of turning off the Java cache completely, that I can force my browser to always download the applet from the server? Thanks.

Having the Java plugin Control Panel open, it's pretty easy just to press the clear cache buttonn

That's true, but that clears the entire cache, including unrelated Java resources that I'd like to save. Additionally, I'd like to not have to be bothered with opening the Java plugin control panel whenever I'm working on this project. I know that's lazy of me, but that's what the computer's made for, right? :)

afaik the only other thing you can do is to turn off caching, also by using the Control Panel
