Redirect - 302 or 307

Hi all
I am moving my application to a new host, and every so often I see an "Error 302 Found" page rather than the page I want. This happens when the user sends a POST request and I redirect them to a GET url - I do this after almost every POST, to prevent refreshes from double posting.
I've looked this up and it seems that this is a temporary redirect message, and the browser is NOT supposed to follow it.
It seems to me that I need a 307 redirect code instead.
I'm using response.sendRedirect() - is there anyway to configure this to send a 307 code instead of a 302 ?
