I am implementing an IntranetMailServer using the tiles framework now on the login page i need to disable the back button, i tried it using the javascript but when i implement it on the layout.jsp it is working on every single page but when i tried it on the particular login page it is not working because i have already given the body tag in layout.jsp
my java script is like this


now please do tell me how to achieve it

I would suggest you take a step back and go through https://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/InterfaceDesignersRule1 before even thinking of disabling the back button.
Tell us what problem you are trying to solve and we can offer alternative suggestions

yes you are absolutely right but the thing is that for the security concern i want that after logout if somother person uses the same pc and if he/she presses the back button the he/she will see all the private messages of others so this thing i don't want to happen

Disabling the back button will not achieve any level of security. Be sure to read the links that Maneesh posted.

and secondly i am making an intranet mail server so i just need to confirm that when a user sends an attachment to another person so all i have to do is to store that files original name inside the database or else i have to save that file path or the file itself i know it's stupid thing to ask but please tell me as i am 90% sure onto the 1st option
