I wanted to know are there any cases where when you click on browser back/forward button it makes a call to the server? I am really surprised to see the page submission happening whenever browser back/forward button is hit in our application.
I am working on an application which has been implemented in Struts(DispatchAction concept), Tiles. As far as my knowledge is concerned, browser buttons never make a call to the server, instead all the visited pages are just pulled from cache and displayed but my application is behaving quite opposite way, it makes a call to the server on every hit on browser-back/forward buttons and results in an inconsistent behaviour. After searching for quite sometime, i found these lines : Another issue is caching pages when browsers navigate backwards -- browsers are more likely to silently re-submit a form request with a GET method than with a POST request. source: http://lists.nyphp.org/pipermail/talk/2003-February/002327.html
Do you think the problem is with the request submission or in usuage of Struts Dispatch Action?
