I searched previous "refresh" subject but found none like I want to ask.
I want to refresh my the JSP page after every record he got from the file.
<% while (((record = br.readLine()) != null)) %>
...then refresh
So this maintains a one line page, not like the page that increments the string line making the page cluttered and long.
Please help. Thanks guys and gals.

HTTP is a not a push kind of protocol (server can't send anything anytime at will), so u can't do that. Only thing possible is to have refresh meta tag with very low timeout (say 3 seconds)
I agree. Here's the link:
