Hi

I am using Eclipse 3.2.2 and TomCat 5.5 to set up my local web environment. However whenever I start server from the eclipse in "localhost" its keep caching the images. If I change the image with the same name it does not recognise the new coming jpg. Keep showing the old image although I have deleted it from the file system.

Is there anyway to refresh this kind of cache? How can I possibly see the new image with the same exact name?

Any help will be useful..

Thanks

Tomcat does not cache. It's your browser that does the caching.

Hi Tim

True TomCat does not cache...Its the Eclipse I am referring actually?

I am pretty sure its not the browser as I had tried deleting the cache in both chrome and firefox or IE.

Any other ideas?

Thanks for the reply.
