Hi,
Anybody tell me. How can I prevent to store image in browser cache. Every time the image should get from server and I should prevent to use images from cache.

Regards,
Vinoth.

To what aim? If your aim is so that a fresh image will be fetched each time because the image is changing, you can serve the image through a servlet and set the no-cache headers (as described the FAQ). If your aim is to prevent the users from saving the images to their local disk, you are out of luck. If the browser can display the image, the user can save it.

So what is your actual goal?
