Hi Justin,

Did you try deleting the contents of the work folder?

Subject: Help root context problem!!!

I'm having caching problems with Tomcat. Here's what I'm trying to do. I 
have an app under the mapping of /PageWorks. In the context I have a 
index.jsp that does a jsp:forward to a servlet that handles the request. 
So to access the app you have to type http://myserver/PageWorks and it 
works. But, I want user to be able to type http://myserver and the 
/PageWorks/index.jsp with respond. So to do this I change the context in 
the server.xml file to point to PageWorks instead of ROOT. This also 
worked like I wanted, but the index.jsp is loaded from the /PageWorks app 
once. Then from there on it sends the old content every time. The servlet 
that this jsp is forwarding to changes and so does the jsp, but the 
http://myserver always returns the old. If you access the servlet or jsp 
using there full http://myserver/PageWorks path you get the new content 
every time. I've tried all the client side cache tricks, but I know for 
sure it's the server that's caching it. How can I get this to stop? 

Thank You,
