I noticed something about servlets in general: For example, when I'm
on a servlet page and I do a refresh in (F5/Ctrl-R) I get the annoying POSTDATA warning message (if you click ok it'll resubmit, blah blah blah). Why
is that? How can one avoid it?

In this article I talk about the PRG Technique which addresses your issue.
