Programatically Clear Applet from Browser Cache?

Is there anyway to have my applet clear itself from the browser cache upon completion? It surely is a pain to clear the cache by hand when debugging, and it would seem to be a general courtesy for a developer whose applets tend to be "run once."

Thank you very much for reading my post.

It used to be -and we're talking Netscape 3 here- that holding down the Alt key while clicking the Reload button would also reload applets. Haven't tried it in ages, but it's worth a shot.

Hi, Ulf,
That sounds like a good trick to know. I am also interested in just clearing the cache as well as reloading the applets.
Any thoughts?
