HTML embed tag not refresh PDF file
Posted on 2011-09-17
I have a simple HTML embed tag shown below...
<embed id="pdf" width="700" src="printjobs/out/1.pdf" height="850"></embed>
The content in the PDF file is created dynamically using jsp backend. The problem is that once a filename is used it does not refresh the file to show the current content. The previous content is locked in memory. I can delete the temp file and it will work once then get stuck again. Any suggestions or better yet offer an inexpensive solution for displaying PDF files without using Adobe.
This is a jsp application that must support IE7 and above. I am currently testing with IE7
