MY situation:
i have 2 jsp pages , the first page is a login.jsp where a user name and password is authenticated , if correct then the next page show.jsp is revealed .
MY problemS:
1. if the user is authenticated then he goes into show.jsp( as i said above) but if he clicks the back button on the browser then the same page (show.jsp) appears on the browser but this is not sensible as the user should be taken to login.jsp !!! i suspect some caching happening here , how to rectify there something to be corrected with sessions ??
i feel that every query should be made from server and not from the cache of browser but how to do it!!!
Any idea is welcomed with utmost gratitude!!!

according to me what is happening in ur case, ur login page checks for some condition and redirects it to the show page, now when u r on the show page and u click on back button it will go to the login page and since u r already logged in (ur condition is true) it again takes u to the show page.

hi thanks for the support , instead of probing thro the javascript i solved this problem by using Deployment descriptor(web.xml)which makes the things relatively easy !!!

if someone has a interest in this then just email me and i will be pleased to help you all!!! if u wait for sometime then i will be releasing a detailed NOTES regarding this deployment descriptor as all the web sites which deal with this havent got a good description which hopefully i will be making in a couple of days (perhaps in 2 weeks!!!)
I agree. Here's the link:
