Hi,

I am developing a intranet application using JSP. In that one user logs out and when another user logs in that and if he presses back button of web browser then it shows previous users pages.

To disallow this, in log out process i write session.invalidate() method and i am checking at every page whether session is new or not with session.isNew(). But this doesnt work.

Anybody has idea why it happens. Or any other solution??

Thanks..

<%
response.setHeader("Pragma","No-cache");
response.setHeader("Cache-Control","no-cache");
response.setDateHeader("Expires", 0);
%>
