Java WebStart 1.6.0 always cache jnlp files

We generate jnlp files by our servlet.
As far as I can see Java WebStart 1.6.0 move jnlp to cache and if I try to call the same jnlp then Java WebStart 1.6.0 get this jnlp file from cache not from my servlet.

I tried to set next headers in order to force not to cache jnlp files:

But it does not help us.

We do not have such problems with Java WebStart 1.4 and Java WebStart 1.5.

What header should I set in order to get generated jnlp file but not cached?

Is there a solution for this? We too do not want the jnlp to be cached on the local machine

The solution:



Including the above code in the jnlp file will always get the latest jnlp file from the server.

Or if you're using a servlet to send the JNLP file to the response, you override its getLastModified() method to return that information.
