Force browser to refresh page when using ajax with Coldfusion

Last Modified: 2012-05-08

I am seeing issues with a heavily Ajax reliant application I have written where the users browser is not not automatically refreshing the page content when required and still using the cached version.

I initially though that this was IE only but it would appear that Chrome is having the same issue on the Mac.

Can anyone suggest a way to code around this and force the browser to recognise the new content?
At the moment I am having to instruct the client to ensure that all browsers cache setting are manually adjusted.
