Yeah, by default your browser will usually request the JS file every time and the web server will return a 304 not modified. I have enabled more aggressive caching on our CDN that basically tells the browsers not to bother checking back for 24 hours. Cache busting (by changing the URL) is a necessity for day-time deployments. Having the HTML Helper do that for you automatically is a real life saver. (We learned this lesson the hard way)

Hi brad
There is some really great stuff here. I don’t suppose you’re at liberty to share any code samples for ant scripts that clear the trusted cache or the version number bits? These are things I’m currently working through and could greatly benefit from.

On a side note is your build process automating the modification, concatenation, and replacement of your JS/CSS assets?
