I am writing a JSP(Java server page), i need to regenerate a dropdown list using a block of codes which is on top of the page,after carrying out some functions at the bottom of the same page.
To avoid the later action from taking effect after the next submit.
I need to RELOAD the page JUST after executing this action.
Please , how do i reload a page within itself.

If it is javascript that is creating the list in the dropdown then after you create the new options in the list just call
history.go(0), this reloads the current page. If you're using frames you'l have to do something like this:
hope that helps

Thanks Dave and Al ian for your prompt reply.The Select-option is NOT generated using JavaScript,but from an initially populated
Hashtable(a Java class which stores some key=value pair using unique keys).Please, i am giving a more detailed explanation of the problem.If U can help please....

I am writing a JSP which removes items from a top LIST box to
dynamically generate a Table below on the same page.
And removing rows from the table to add back to the Top List.
This is working well, EXCEPT that on removing one or more rows
the items contained in the removed rows are not added to the top
List immediately.Since the code generating the List
(dynamically from a Query) as been by-passed before removing the
rows. So, the items removed are added on display after the next
request(submission of the form).

Please, how can i RELOAD the page within itself to go back to
the Logic (scriptlet block)on top which generate the list
before any next request.
Note: the Top list is generated using a HashTable (in java.util package) and the Table with each row (containing an item removed from the Top List(i.e. select) and a checkbox + textfield) is also generated by a second Hashtable.

I had to re-arrange my business logic within the JSP:
Processing of Top and bottom Hashtable came before display
of List .Then the table display was at the tail end.Cheers.
I agree. Here's the link:
