Wildfly: Disabling bowser caching of static web pages

I have an AngularJS index.html page and am having a problem in Wilfly 8.1.0 that the page is being cached (it is in a war file).

I know that the old <meta http-equiv... header tags are highly unrelieable.

Is there a way to force Wildfly to server the default values of:

    Cache-Control: no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate
    Pragma: no-cache
    Expires: 0

in the HTTP response header?

Cached - I am assuming you mean cached on the browser and not the server?

What role is Wildfly playing in this?

Can you describe the problem a bit more - you have an Angular page - which should not be affected by caching as it runs off the state of its model - which is not cached.

The index.html which contains the AngularJS refs is being cached by the browser.  You have to empty the cache or try Ctrl-Shift-Reload to force it.

I found this article to update the <filters> in the standalone.xml and will try it out:

Firefox says that they cache everything.  If you click on 'Back', they use the cached version.  The anti-cache measures may affect when you are loading the page the first time.

What specific problem are you having?  Making pages work in spite of caching has become a 'normal' thing now on the web.

I don't know this thing in detail, having seen it once in action, but I presume there is nothing in the console (at http://<host>:9990/console)?

Personally I build my Angular Apps with Grunt and minify all the Javascript and HTML into files, which have automatically generated names from release to release. In this way it is irrelevant what the browser stores from release to release, but has the advantage of caching the "code" for a given release.
