Maybe some caching?

If it's browser related caching, a CTRL+F5 should do the trick

<applet code="me.joaogl.road.applet.Applet" archive="Test.jar" width="800" height="600" >
<param name='cache_option' value='no'>

BTW by pressing CTRL + F5 it reloads but keeps not updating the applet

Read this: How do I clear the Java cache?

Edit: this is just another example of unfathomable stupidity involved in Java browser plugin design. A web-based application that does not update automatically. I mean, what's the point?

Java dates back to a time when automatic updates would have been overly expensive to do for everything by default.  It just hasn't changed with the times.  You'll notice the plugin itself still doesn't update itself automatically -- gives them more chances to put the shovelware on your PC after all.

It looks like the only language with a truly reliable code transport on the web is javascript.  Tongue
