I'm working on an app where one frame calls a servlet that does an xsl:sort to update an html doc. I'm using 'response.sendRedirect' to bring me back to the frame that called the servlet, but then I need to refresh the frame that displays the html that was just updated. I've been using 'parent.framename.location = relativeURL' to accomplish this, but with limited success. It seems to work only on every second update. I know the transform is successful and the html is updating every time, but the display frame doesn't update. I also dont' think its a caching problem, as I'm using <META CONTENT="-1" HTTP-EQUIV="Expires"> <META CONTENT="no-cache" HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma"> <META CONTENT="no-cache" HTTP-EQUIV="Cache-Control"> <META CONTENT="no-store" HTTP-EQUIV="Cache-Control"> in the head of the html doc. So is there another way to do this? Can I redirect to a frame other that the one that called the servlet? If so, how? Thanks in advance
