in all my pages to ensure that requests to the pages with dynamic content (most of them) actually reload from the server rather than from the browser cache or any intermediate proxy server caches. Now I'm trying to add the "eye-candy" and find that as well as going back to the server for data (good), my browser (Firefox) is reloading all the images, css, js etc from the server every time as well(bad) and slowing things down (very bad).
I'd be grateful for any hint/suggestions as to how to force the dynamic part of the page to go back to the server but allow the browser to cache the constant data (images, css etc)? Would running Tomcat behind a web-server to load the static data help, or am I pretty much stuffed using the meta tags?
