IE 6 caching may slow save-and-reload developers

Lots of people love the 'save and reload' style of development that NetBeans gives you while doing JSP development. I know that I do.

Then I ran into a bug report claiming that it did not work.

Since I use the capability fairly regularly, I was a bit puzzled. So, I sat down with the person that filed the bug to see what we could find.

It appears to be a problem with IE 6's default values for properties associated with caching. One of the properties in the Settings for the caching is titled; Check for newer versions of stored pages. The default value for this property appears to be "Automatically". When we changed the value of this property to "Every visit to the page" things started to work properly again.

If you are having problems with doing 'save and reload' development and testing, you may want to double check the Settings of the Temporary Internet Files in IE's Internet Options.
