Refresh of local client cache without version change RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been working with the trial version of the AVE Explorer product that will allow you to directly edit the SFT files.  I can see many times where just a file needs to be updated or a registry key modified but you do not need to fully resequence. 

    One of the options of the product is to save the SFT in an "as-is" mode, which does not increment the version number.  That too seems like it might be a good idea.  If you load this updated SFT file back on the streaming server, what would tell the client to pickup the new version?

    Is there a way (short of completely deleting the application) to update the local client cache with the updated SFT file even though the version has not changed?  Will a simple unload of the application and subsequent load accomplish this?  In this scenario are the user settings for the application preserved?

    Maybe a new version is always the way to go?  Comments?

  • I might be wrong about this, but I think the client looks at the "date modified" stamp to see if it has changed from time to time.
