Setting Caching Options

Note Caching settings apply only to Terminal Viewers Java configurations, and only when accessed by Internet Explorer.

The caching options set in Presentation Manager do not affect the browser's temporary cache, which is controlled by the browser's configuration settings; instead, they determine whether Java files associated with Terminal Viewers configurations are installed on the client when a presentation is selected on the myAccess Links page.

When the Java files are cached in this way, a user does not have to wait for the files to download the next time he or she accesses the presentation. However, if the Java files are updated on the server, the user might not receive the latest version. (This applies only to the Java code itself; configuration changes are always downloaded.) To receive an updated version, the cached files must be removed manually.

The caching options set using Presentation Manager take precedence over any caching options specified by the user on the myAccess Links Cache Preferences page. For example, if the Caching option in Presentation Manager is enabled, and the user selects No on the Cache Preferences page, the Java files are still cached. The caching options specified by the user on the Cache Preferences page take effect only when the Caching option in Presentation Manager is set to Ask User.
