Hi All,
I am working with Grails 1.1.I have a userLogin action which validates a username and password and forwards to the view.In the view I am displaying a message like "Welcome ......$(username)" which is displaying the correct username.But when I press Ctrl+N keys and open another browser window(firefox) it still displays the same message.I am trying to display the default page and not the one where the user has already logged in.I have also tried setting the following response headers


in the userLoging action but for some reason the browser doesn't seem to clear the cache.Could somebody please guide me in the right direction.

I suspect your problem is due to the session. Once a browser has a session cookie, it will always send that cookie to the server. You either have to log out or open a different browser (such as Opera). I gather that there are ways to get round this, but I don't know what they are.

Happens for me too if you are using Single Sign on. I believe that is a feature!
