My web server is running servlet which is maintaining sessions. Based on session data different dynamically generated html pages are shown. All html pages update session data when their forms are submitted with post method.How can client access previously seen Html page with back method? I can not change post method.Can I repost the posted data automatoically, without using reload?

Have you tried the javascript history.back() command? I'm not sure whether this works for the post method

My condition is if user clicks back, the html page having form with post method must be posted again.

Try to use

window.location.reload()

with some conditional statement which will meet your requarements during the page loading. (For example you won't need this to be executed when the user accesses the page for the first time).
It will have the same effect as the "Reload" button pressed.
