Hi All,

I generated a web application using jsp related to online shopping. After submitting a record addition, if I press refresh button, again it adds the same information as another record to the database. Is there any clear way to prevent page refresh in jsp pages?

You can't prevent page refreshes but the post-redirect-get pattern will eliminate them from causing a double post in your app.

Look in our JSP FAQ.
There is an entry on the subject in there.
