How do you clear the browser cache in jsp?

Hi to prevent the browser from cache. You have to implement the following code at top of the .jsp page.

You will need to set the appropriate HTTP header attributes to prevent the dynamic content output by the JSP page from being cached by the browser. Just execute the following scriptlet at the beginning of your JSP pages to prevent them from being cached at the browser. You need both the statements to take care of some of the older browser versions. <% response.setHeader("Cache-Control","no-cache"); //HTTP 1.1 response.setHeader("Pragma","no-cache"); //HTTP 1.0 response.setDateHeader ("Expires", 0); //prevents caching at the proxy server %>

What option will empty the log of internet sites you have recently viewed?

It would depend on the internet browser you are using and probably the version of the browser you have.

In chromium, In the menu pulldown on the top right, go to settings, show advance settings, privacy, clear browsing data, select desired options.

Google chrome should be similar to chromium.

In Firefox, click History, clear history, select options you desire.

With Internet Explorer, clear history / delete browser history will both remove the current list of sites.

Some third-party software may still be able to access some or all of this information until it is erased or overwritten.

Most other browsers should have some similar capability.

It depends on the browser you use.

The browser I use is chrome, for that you'd go to the wrench icon and select tools and from there select 'Clear Browsing Data'

On IE you'd select the 'Safety' drop down menu and from there you'd pick the 'Delete Browsing Data' option.

Remember though, even if you delete browsing history websites like Google may keep track of the info without your consent. to prevent this I suggest using Google Chrome's 'In Cognito' feature.

Since Firefox version 4 to delete the browsing history click on the Firefox button in the top left hover of history, then click clear browsing history. Then from there you can select the time frame to delete and then hit "Clear now". You can also press Ctrl+Shift+del on a windows, mac or Linux machine and follow the same steps following clicking clear browsing history.

Tools > Clear Private Data...

or just press Ctrl + Shift + Delete

Tools > Options...

Then click on the privacy button near the top of the options menu, there are settings for clearing history, you can tell FireFox what to clear by default, clear whenever it's closed etc...

Click your "start" menu, then go to "control panel" where you will see the whole menu. Click the "internet option" and from there it will open where you will see " internet properties" Inside click on "general" and it will take you to how to delete browsing history. It's very easy, just follow what I wrote here..

How do you delete your computer's cache?

The reason why you have to delete the cache in the computer because it takes up to much space on your hard drive and it also slows down your computer. The way you can do this with window XP is to go into the Internet Explorer and select tools, you will see a selection where it says Internet Options, go to the general tab and delete cookies, files and offline files, go and clear history. Next step go to settings in general and view files and go to edit select all and delete. Then after this hit apply, another spot you can go to to clear cache is in the content tab - clear SSL state - auto complete - clear forms and passwords.

The cache is a small data-memory storage area that your computer accesses instantly, rather than having to re-access the original data from its original source. Once your Web browser accesses a Web page it references that page within your computer's cache. When a subsequent Web page calls for the same files, your browser loads the cached files instantly, eliminating downloading time.

Computer cache might prevent new pages from loading correctly. For instance, if you tried to view your account and received an error message, but you know your PIN and barcode numbers are correct, this is probably a cache problem. You will need to clear your cache to correct this problem. The directions below will help you clear the memory cache in your computer.

Netscape Navigator 4.0 and higher:

1) Click on Edit in the menu bar at the top of your browser.

2) Select Preferences.

3) Click Advanced in the left column.

4) Select Cache under Advanced.

5) Click the Clear Memory Cache and Clear Disk Cache buttons.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0

1) Click on View in the menu bar at the top of your browser.

2) Select Internet Options.

3) Under the Temporary Internet Files section, click on the Delete Files button.

4) Click OK.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 and higher:

1) Click on Tools in the menu bar at the top of your browser.

2) Select Internet Options.

How do you delete your history?

+ctrl+shift+delete only for firefox

A word of caution though - you will not succeed in removing ALL traces of what you have been up to on your computer unless you completely overwrite the entire disk. Barring that, a good computer forensic examiner will still be able to recover all sorts of artifacts that will show so much that it won't much matter if you delete your history or not. Deleting your history only prevents a casual examiner from seeing where you have been.

Can you recover deleted browser history files from a PC?

You certainly can - if you have the right skills and tools. All that happens when you "delete" the browser history is that the space where it was stored is marked as available for re-use. Until something else is written to that space, the original information remains and can be recovered by someone using forensic tools.

I have the requisite skills and tools. My kids learned that they were not skilled enough to hide their internet activities from me - so they had best use it correctly. Fortunately they were good kids and found that "good" activities were fun and "bad" ones really were not as fun as advertised, so I didn't have to bust their chops more than once or twice.

Can the Malware called Daemon Spy be downloaded via browser cookies?

A browser cookie is piece of text stored on your computer through your browser. It is used for an origin website to send state information to a user's browser and for the browser to return the state information to the origin site

Cookies are not software. They can't be programmed, can't carry viruses, and can't unleash malware to on your computer. However, they can be used by spyware to track user's browsing activities - a major privacy concern that prompted Europe and US law makers to take actions. Cookies can also be potentially copied by hackers who may then be able to use information stored in the cookies to gain access to a victim's web account.

With this in mind - NO Daemon Spy cannot be downloaded via browser cookies, although that malware might create its own cookies when it runs.
