Go back to previous page

In an updateable page I provide a Cancel button which cancels the update and re-displays the previous page. I can think of 3 ways of doing this:

1 - Java Script in the button to 'go back' to the previous page.
2 - Code a complete re-display of the previous page including retrieveing data from the database.
3 - As for 2 but use data previously stored as Session attributes.

Is there a better way of doing this ? Which method conforms to Struts best practice ?

Thanks for your help.

3rd way is looking good to me. You can store the information from DB into cache and take the data from cache if its not empty.

I agree. Here's the link:
