How can I ensure that users aren't running a cached version of an applet when a newer version is available?

another way is to specify cache_option="no" in your applet
html. This will make sure that the applet jar is not cached.

One possibility/workaround is to disable cache on your browser. Of course this slows you down, but is guaranteed.

I worked a few years ago on a project using an application called Marimba Castanet Tuner which did the check for you and updated application (as opposed to applet) jar files if it found a newer version on the server. It might be modifiable to suit your needs.
