Do you people know if there is perhaps some special caching applied to Action Script / Flash files (*.swf) ?
When I deploy an updated version of my Flash file to server\default\deploy\some_sub_dir\foo.swf
I still get to see the old web page in my web browser.
However, when I modify a HTML-file in the deploy directory then the change is visible.
So my question, is there some special caching for *.swf files that I'm missing?
Running JBoss -5.1.0.GA on Windows Server 2008
Apache is used for redirecting services but I can bypass this and it still doesn't work.
Testing the browser on a seperate Windows 7 machine.
I tried several web browsers: IE9, Chrome, FF 3.6 and FF 22. For each of them I cleared the local cache on the PC and even the Flash Player cache as described in http://forums.adobe.com/message/4278569
This all didn't change a thing, I'm still seeing the old Flash web page which makes me think the JBoss web server (Tomcat?) is serving me an old page.
Then I tried clearing the JBoss cache by deleting the server\default\work and server\default\tmp directories. --> still the old web page.
Uninstalling JBoss and re-installing with the new *.swf page added to the ear-file still shows me the old/original swf page.
I triple checked the new swf file is in the directory server\default\deploy\some_sub_dir.
I can open it there and it shows the new contents.
I searched the server\default directory tree for a duplicate file name but to no avail.
This is driving me nuts, where is the old swf page coming from?
