the url is mapped in struts.xml to a method in an action, I have a breakpoint in the method that is reached but it only happens once - it should be called every 5 seconds.
The method returns some text with the value of a counter that is incremented on each call but the counter value does not change - no surprise since the method's breakpoint is not reached.
It seems to me that there is some "cacheing" going on in struts, pseudo code:
if action has executed return action results
else call action
Just to reiterate, the method should be called every 5 seconds but is only called once.
