Problems on Refresh

My JSP page reads some data from a bean. The problem is that when a refresh appears, my page does not read anymore from the bean; instrad, it shows the values from the first initialization.
Where could be the problem?
Yours greenhorn,

It sounds like you are getting a new Bean with every request-response transaction.
If you want to save the state of the Bean between calls, you will have to attach it to the session with setAttribute() or make other provision for preserving it.

<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0"> produces exactly the effect that I wanted.
