Hi, I am trying to debug an applet from a browser like IE. However, the browser seems to have the applet saved in some temporary directory because each time I changed the applet, the browser does not show. Also, even after I deleted the applet class from the code base directory, when I hit that page, that applet still runs! Is there anyway I can erase the applet class from the browser entirely so I can debug? Thanks.
i have the same problem sometimes when i modify an applet and just hit "refresh" on my IE5.5 browser. i find that if i close the browser and then open it again the applet's changes have taken effect. it seems that the applet would change with the rest of the page, but i guess not.
Hi Cameron, That is why I prefer Netscape for debugging applets. In Netscape you can easily clear the cache: 1. Goto Edit menu 2. Select Preferences 3. Open the Advanced tree (click on plus sign in front) 4. Select Cache 5. Click Clear Memory Cache button 6. Click Clear Disk Cache button If you want to do numerous reloads you will also have to perform the following: 7. Place a '0' inside the memory cache textfield 8. Place a '0' inside the disk cache textfield When you are done with your debugging just replace the removed values from memory and disk textfields. For IE, it seems to be much harder. You will need to remove temporary internet files each time you want to reload your applet. Good Luck, Manfred.
Came across this old post. My solution with IE is to use ctrl-refresh on the page with the applet. This seems to flush old applets from the cache. As far as I can see, the cache for applets is separate from the cache for html resources. So emptying your browser's cache won't make any difference. Cheers, J
hai Cameron , The problem is with u r browser cache ,in order to avoid this u have to search for the page for every referesh hope this works.......... <META HTTP-EQUIV="pragma" CONTENT="no-cache"> <META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="now"> <META HTTP-EQUIV="last modified" CONTENT="now"> Best of luck
