Hello,
I have tried JSP on tomcat.When an html form calls the
JSP via the submit button, the jsp is called twice.
I would like to know if there is some setting involved
with the tomcat.
I would like to get the reply asap.

The server has no control over how many times a request is made, so it can't be a Tomcat problem. A lot of people double-click on web pages just like they've been trained to do on desktop apps, and this is more likely your problem.
How is the JSP request being made? A form submit, hyperlink, or something more exotic like JavaScript?

I think it might be browser specific, but I've had the following code submitting twice:

I'm not recommending you do it this way , just saying there are silly things you can do at the client side to make it all act wierd.

Hey,
I have had the same problem. Sometimes (say, one out of five) when I submit a form pressing a button (once) it gets executed twice on Tomcat. This works fine though when running on localhost, but not on my ISP.
I really need to solve this... ANY ideas, please??!
