How do I prevent my JSP pages from being cached in the history folder?
Thanks for any help

There might be an answer to this in the JavaScript forum. Do a search there. We'll have this thread closed or moved there if you find something.

I take it then that the code below will have no affect? I write out information on the JSP page through attributes and tags and when I use the history page that is still their. The forms with inboxes are cleared, but for the info I put on the page using stored information it shows up. I can solve the problem of using the back button with some java script (although very inelegantly)
response.setDateHeader ("Expires", 0);
response.setHeader("Pragma", "no-cache");
response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "no-store");
response.setDateHeader("max-age", 0);
response.setDateHeader("Expires", 0);
I agree. Here's the link:
