Hi ,
Iam having a probelem with the back and refresh functionality.
I have a page with a popup with a disabled cell and related values listed.
As i navigate to other page and hit back, all the values are listed but the related worker name is not correct.
It is a disabled cell. any idea why the cell is no getting refreshed.
Example like a worker with his details..details are proper but the worker name is wrong..

Back button pulls data from the cache, not the server.

Your browser caches data and stores it on your machine in the temp folder. It remembers state to some point. That is how the web works with get requests.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
