i have a problem with running java applet from IE (or Mozilla).
Java store many jar_cache.tmp files with size of 0 kb in my local temp directory when I run applet and working on them.

When I close my applet and browser, this files stay in temp directory. Problem is that after a few months of using applet, temp directory have a few hundred thousand jar_cache.tmp files.

In Java control panel I use option 'Keep temporary internet files but in directory ...\Application Data\Sun\Java\jdk1.6.0_17\cache

I currently use java 1.6.0_17.

Can somebody please help me?
How I can prevent that java do this?

Regards, Dominik

The Java Plugin control panel has a setting to limit the size of the jar cache.

On which control panel you think?

I try various combination of using 'Keep temporary internet files' (disabled, enabled etc...) in Java control panel but jar_cache files is always in temp directory...
