It wouldn't be possible to do that from the commandline, would it?

The browser must be loaded for the JVM to be
loaded (for the cache to be cleared).

So - no. Not without some JNI magic, in any case
(in which case, it would be both platform and browser
specific AFAIU).

OTOH - if you use the command line to launch the
appletviewer (have you looked at the documentation
on it?) it makes the entire question moot.

ask because I'm currently using a batch file to call javac (since its
exact path is kinda long). Clearing the cache doesn't seem all that
unreasonable a thing to do from it, either...

Clearing the cache is entirely unnecessary when using
either of the methods that you trimmed.

Why do neither of those suggestions work for your
