Browser Clients are one of Two things: First off a regular Client browser is a program you use to surf the Web. Such as Opera, internet Explorer or Firefox. This can sometimes be simply refered to as a Client. The second use of the term i have heard is a program such as a java applet which downloads from a website onto your computer through your browser to run a network application. This is called browser client because the client software starts up and requires the browser to work correctly. One such example of this could be a Yahoo Games style interface, where they have you click ona link a new window opens up and downloads part of the game which runs out of your browser.

How do you prevent the output of JSP or Servlet pages from being cached by the browser?

Add the following lines to your JSP: response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "no-cache"); response.setHeader("Pragma", "no-cache"); response.setDateHeader("Expires", -1); The first line works for HTTP/1.1 clients. The second line works for HTTP/1.0 clients. The third line will tell the browser the content is expired, so if the first two lines don't work, hopefully the third will.
