Hello,
I have a servlet that saves a value to the session then redirects to a .jsp page. On the .jsp page I grab the value and display just fine. But when I hit the refresh button my value go's back to 0 ???

I thought If you saved something in the session it stayed there for the session and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, maybe somebody can give me a clue.

-thanks

Let me re-phrase what I'm doing.....

I'm not redirecting as in response.redirect I'm using this....

RequestDispatcher dispatcher =
getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/test.jsp");
dispatcher.forward(request,response);

oops, I figured it out. It works great i was just setting the variable twice instead of setting then getting in the servlet. Thanks for all the replys !
