Hi,
I, at server side, need to update an applet atleast once in a day. But, now the user has to close the browser to get the latest one.
Is there anyway we can programmatically remove the old applet from browser cache?
The following code also doesnot help?
<PARAM NAME="cache_option" VALUE="Browser">
<PARAM NAME="cache_archive" VALUE="HelloWorld.jar">

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
