I'm developing a fairly large applet (~100K) which is subdivided into multiple jars. Mozilla refuses to reload the new jar file. All jar overwritten. Applet tag: <applet alt="Your browser does not support Java." code="com.threedef.XXXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXXXXX.class" archive="/html/session/graphics/XXXXXXapplet.jar, /html/session/graphics/awt.jar, /html/session/graphics/XXXXXXXXXXXX.jar" width=635 height=334> // Bunch of params </applet> I have progressively worked up the cache settings from "Once per session" to "Every time..." I have also set Memory and Disk caches to zero. Clearing the caches makes no difference. Both reload and SHIFT+Reload don't refresh it. (I'm using the reload in the contextual popup, not the menu bar since the applet is in a menubar less window.) The only way I've found to clear the jar files is to completely exit the browser. It may be necessary to clear the caches first, but I'm not entirely sure. Netscape 4.76 does the cache comparison correctly. OS: RedHat 7.0. Thanks for the awesome browser.
Follow-up. Noticed the "x: clear classloader cache" key command in the Java Console. This appears to have cleared the cache, but now the main applet class is no longer being found. I verified that it is in the jar file. Also thought it might be relevant to know that I'm pulling the jars and html page down from a web server.
Well, this doesn't sound like it has anything to do with the networking cache. Gagan, could this be OJI? Who should look at this next?

After you use the x feature in the java console, go to a non-java html page, then re-visit your applet page. Does that work?

This may be what you're looking for to handle your jar caching for you. Try this: <applet alt="Your browser does not support Java." code="com.threedef.XXXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXXXXX.class" width=635 height=334> <PARAM NAME='cache_option' VALUE='Plugin'> <PARAM NAME='cache_archive' VALUE='/html/session/graphics/XXXXXXapplet.jar, /html/session/graphics/awt.jar, /html/session/graphics/XXXXXXXXXXXX.jar> <PARAM NAME='cache_version' VALUE='a.b.c.d,a.b.c.d,a.b.c.d'> // Bunch of params </applet> Using the PARAM tags tell the JRE to load the a.b.c.d version of each jar file only once. The only time it will download the jar files a second time is if you change the filename or change the associated version (in hexidecimal) for that jar file in the cache_version tag. Read up on the cache_option, cache_archive, cache_version PARAMs at: http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/1.3/docs/appletcaching.html for more detailed info.

I think this is the dup of 100484. Java Plugin doesn't load updated *jar files it loads them from cache. There is the RFE #4523418 in bugtraq with synopsis: java plugin doesn't reload updated applets. The same situation is with the updated jars. The existing version of java plugin doesn't have the opportunity to be informed that applet (or jars) should NOT be taken from the cache. The only way now is to use option 'x' in java console. I propose to close this bug as dup of 100484
Re-assign to laa.
