You need to figure out how to stop it on the server side.
First check if the record exsists. If it does then you do not enter it. One SQL query will solve you problem. There is no way to do it with JavaScript.

You could have 2 pages:
1 - gets record from session and displays
2 - JSP or Servlet, that saves record
form on page 1 will submit data to page 2,
page 2 will save data in DB if needed and use response.sendRedirect to sent user to page 1.
Then he could refresh as much as he wants
