Subject Re: tomcat caching of static files
Date Sat, 07 Aug 2010 15:07:59 GMT

Are you sure it's Tomcat doing the caching?  I've found that both Firefox
and IE will cache CGI, JSP, servlet, and other dynamic results.  

yes, i'm approaching certain that it isn't a browser issue.  If i delete the
static files and thus force the system to regen i get updated data, but the
url etc is identical as far as the browser is concerned.  it's only if the
thread causes the regen that the action doesn't know and uses old data.  If
i hand-edit the static file, i also get updated data.  there again the url
etc that the browser sees is identical.  So the only thing left as far as i
can see is the tomcat server caching the file in memory and not noticing the
timestamp change when the thread re-creates the file.

very strange.
