Can anyone help me with my JSP/servlet problem?

Hi, I have written a JSP page that returns an
<APPLET> tag allowing me to display any applet I wish (initially a Sign on applet) in the page
The JSP also registers a bean with a scope of session
My sign-on applet talks to a servlet (via http) which authenticates the sign-on attempt - this all works wonderfully!
I can talk to the bean from my servlet, so that it will display the next applet when the JSP page is refreshed
what I am stuck on is getting the page to refresh from my code
If you press the refresh button it works and displays the next applet
But how do I get the browser to reload the page from my bean (or servlet).
I bet the answer is really simple but I am stuck!!!
Thanks for any help you can give
