Applet cached somewhere

I need at hint as to what i'm missing, i'm totally and completely lost.

I've created and applet which runs fine when installed on tomcat. As i final thing i wanted to put the jar file in a war file for easy deployment. In order to test i wanted to start fro scratch and i therefore

- removed everything except the loading html file from my webapps\delta directory.
- stopped tomcat service
- removed everything from work\Catalina
- started tomcat service
- cleared my firefox cache

IMHO i've now removed everything, but when i load, the applet loads fine. Where is it cached ?

The code for the applet is stored in a jar

<PARAM NAME = CODE VALUE = "dk.deltat.timeregistrering.klient.TRApplet.class" >
<PARAM NAME = "ARCHIVE" value="klientJar.jar"

i've done a del /s klientJar.jar from c:\, i have no file called klientJar.jar anywhere on my system. When i stop the tomcat service does not respond, so the server i'm reaching is in fact the server i think it is.

please give me a hint as to what i'm missing

It's cached by the Java Plugin in the browser. In the Java control panel is an option to clear that cache.
I agree. Here's the link:
