This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
The parameter p3 can be one of three values. If the value is 'PER' I want the call to be silent and no visible interaction to the user. The call will just involk a remote data call from the jsp to a servlet, no interactive form will be necessary like when other parameter values are passed.
My alternative is to shell out to a default page that will only serve as info that the transaction has taken place but this is really unnecessary but it is better than what I have now, a blank browser page.
