Back button of the browser

Hello All,

Here is a very basic question and I will appreciate if someone explain me this basic concept:

When user press "Back" or "Forward" button from the browser, does that mean user is sending "GET" request to the server?

I am using struts and my action servlet displays jsp page (contains form with method="POST") and when I clicks next it goes to another action and to the another page and so on. But when I click "Back" Button, this action does not invoke my Action again. Why? What happens in this case?

Thanks for all your help.

Rohit
