Refresh Once

How can I make a JSP page refresh only once at the time of loading.

Any help is highly appreciable.

Save a flag that indicates if the page has been refreshed using a session variable or cookie. On the second time you could then program the variable to wipe itself so future refreshes will still happen if the page is loaded all over again.

Why would you want to refresh a page immediately after loading it?

I want to load it in the JSP which I deployed to portal.

Could you kindly give a sample code. I have a dynamic image.

I agree. Here's the link:
