Hi.  It's too late for me to look it up precisely, but to save you a lot 
of looking around, as far as I remember all that stuff is enabled by 
default, as well in the browser as in Tomcat (at least for static 
content, like your images are if they are just files on the disk, served 
by Tomcat).
It's more work usually when you don't want caching to happen.

Of course the browser is an element which you do not control.  The user 
does. If they decide to turn caching off, or set a low limit for their 
local cache space, you're doomed anyway.
