Subject Re: JSP not using latest version of included file
Date Fri, 20 Dec 2002 18:10:51 GMT
Is this behavior all from one browser, or from multiple browsers?  I had a
similar problem, but by telling my browser to stop caching, it went away, so
my thought was that for whatever reason it was cached on the browser.
Which, as I'm typing this, seems like it might be fixed by the other
solution (a dynamic jsp:include), because if the browser isn't loading it
from somewhere else, it must not be getting a header that leads to
reloading...  you could also maybe try using some of the <META> tags to
force non-caching behavior of the included page...
