Proxies can cache some of the Hadoop servlet/JSP pages

                 Key: HADOOP-6607
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6607
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: io
    Affects Versions: 0.22.0
            Reporter: Steve Loughran
            Priority: Minor

I'm suffering from proxy servers that are caching some of the HttpResponses that Hadoop generates
in servlets/JSP pages. While the web ui is up to date, some of my build files are failing
to pull stuff down because that is going via proxy -it sees an error page rather than the

# Every servlet should set a short expires header and disable caching, especially in proxies.

# JSP pages should do it to
# It's essential that error responses do it.

Maybe this could be done in a filter. Otherwise something like
     * Turn off caching and say that the response expires now
     * @param response the response
    protected void disableCaching(HttpServletResponse response) {
        response.addDateHeader("Expires", System.currentTimeMillis());
        response.addHeader("Cache-Control", "no-cache");
        response.addHeader("Pragma", "no-cache");

Before anyone rushes to do this, we should consult some HTTP experts in Yahoo! or Facebook
to get the options right. It may be best to have, say, a 1s lifespan on everything.
