Lahendage vahemäluprobleemid Flashi, JavaScripti, XML-i, KML-i või Google Mapsi abil

This is a short and sweet post on caching issues. Sites and browsers are built to really optimize resources. They do it so well sometimes that the end result actually breaks your dynamic website instead of updating it as often as you'd like. Today I was working with JW mängija, Flash Movie Player, mis tõmbab XML-faili kaudu filmide loendi.

The problem is that we're always updating the file with new webinars and training classes. If our clients continued to come to the page each day, it would load a cached version of the playlist and never actually show them the latest and greatest.

Selle tulemusena pidin häkkima SWF-i objekti kood et ta arvaks, et laadib iga kord uue esitusloendi.

var video = new SWFObject('player.swf','mpl','670','280','9');
var playlist = 'playlist.xml't='+Math.round(1000 * Math.random());

The way I tricked the player was by putting a querystring on the list name that generated a random number using JavaScript. No matter who hits the page, it's going to look for a different filename, so the player will pull in the playlist fresh each time.

This isn't just handy for JW Player, I've also used this technique for Google Maps when dealing with KML files that change dynamically. Simply generate a random querystring and the system will reload the (fairly static) KML file each time the user visits. It's a hack, but it's an easy way to essentially turn caching maha in these applications that don't have the option.
