    richfaces scripts reloaded on each new page

    Michal Glowacki Novice

      hi,

       

        I have a problem with two resources being loaded on each page change: ui.pack.js and framework.pack.js. Those are big bastards so I'd like them to be cached. I have set up loadind style strategy to ALL, I removed:

       

                  <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
                  <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache" />
                  <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" />

                  <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />

                  <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache" />

                  <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" />

       

      from my html <head> section and problem still persists. Exactly it is like this:

       

      I go to mydomain.com/pageA.xhtml - scripts reloaded

      i refresh using F5 - scripts not reloaded

      I go to pageB - scripts reloaded

      I go back to pageA - scripts reloaded.

       

      Only situation they are not reloaded is when I press F5. Even being on pageA and clicking a link there to pageA results in scripts reload.

       

      Perhaps it's not RF as I see other smaller scripts behave the same way.

       

      I am using RF 3.2.2 SR1 with JBoss Seam 2.2.0

       

      Regards,

      Michal

          Sorry, my scripts are reloaded even with F5, but this is probably because a4j:loadStyle adds some attributes to src of each style, like node1=dfas43dsf...

           

          One more tip, no tomcat/apache is adding pragma: no-cache etc himself. Result html is clean of this.

            Hi Michal,

             

            Please check the following issue: https://jira.jboss.org/browse/RF-7452 . Also does the problem affect HTTPS or HTTP?

              hi Nick,

               

                it affects both HTTP and HTTPS. My page is redirected to secure connection anyway, but I made tests on HTTP as well. Now I tried with Live HTTP headers FF plugin and this is the header for one of a4j elements.

              The link you gave me, looks like I could match some of the infos to my case. Like the content of authent. resources is not cached. This is part of my web.xml

               

               

              <security-constraint>

                  <display-name>Restrict raw XHTML Documents</display-name>

                  <web-resource-collection>

                    <web-resource-name>XHTML</web-resource-name>

                    <url-pattern>*.xhtml</url-pattern>     

                  </web-resource-collection>

                  <auth-constraint/>

                </security-constraint>

                <login-config>

                  <auth-method>BASIC</auth-method>

                </login-config>

               

              I tried adding:

              <web-resource-collection>

                    <web-resource-name>unrestricted</web-resource-name>

                    <url-pattern>/MyPage/a4j/*</url-pattern>     

                    <url-pattern>/MyPage/scripts/*</url-pattern>     

                  </web-resource-collection>

               

              to see if it could be the issue, but unfortunately the javascript stopped working then :/
