Subject [jira] [Created] (GUACAMOLE-275) Javascript from Guacamole extensions is cached browser side
Date Thu, 20 Apr 2017 17:00:09 GMT
Daryl Borth created GUACAMOLE-275:

             Summary: Javascript from Guacamole extensions is cached browser side
                 Key: GUACAMOLE-275
             Project: Guacamole
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: guacamole-client
            Reporter: Daryl Borth

Guacamole combines the JS from extensions and rolls it into app.js. It then cache-busts by
adding a version string to the app.js (eg: app.js?v=0.9.12-incubating). 

This works great for preventing a browser from serving up JS from older Guacamole code. But
it does nothing to prevent the code from older extensions from being loaded. We change our
extension periodically and there isn't always a new Guacamole version out. This can lead to
backwards-incompatible changes breaking the application.

Can some sort of cache busting or expiration of some sort be added?

Preferably, in the ResourceServlet there'd be some new headers added, eg: Cache-Control: no-cache
or at least an Expires header
