I have a web application (.war) that contains some static files (e.g. MS word documents). When I try to download these files, JBoss automatically sets some HTTP-headers in the response. Is there a way to configure JBoss (version 3.2.7) to set these headers to specific values (or omit them)?
I'm especially interested in the
Cache-Control: no cache
header, because this leads to some problems when downloading files over https with Internet Explorer (IE will refuse to save the file to disk).
Btw. this behaviour can be changed by adding an entry to the windows registry:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings] "BypassSSLNoCacheCheck"=dword:00000001
but obviously I'm not going to ask customers to fiddle with their registry just to donwload a file.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
