I want to prevent users clicking a hyperlink more than once in a JSP page. Is there any way that can be done? Basically I need to avoid the user from clicking the link multiple times to prevent Tomcat server to process multiple requests. One acceptable solution for me is that ,if user clicks a link then the page containing that link becomes blank (nothing would be on page so user willnot be able to click it again)and user will feel that as if the response is loading.But how to implement that ?How can I do such thing that is, when a user clicks on a hyperlink the request for processing will be sent to server and the current page will become blank untill the new response page appears. In simple words i dont want server to process multiple requests as a result of user's clicking on same link and requesting same processing.
Better to build your serverside application so that it can deal with the situation.
