Hello All,
     I got a web application, in which there are different menus. (The menus are constructed using the gif images embedded a html file and this html file is included in all the jsp's) .Now if the user click on say the first option in the menu (in the jsp), it inturn goes to a servlet and contacts the appropriate class file for getting data's for that jsp page. It takes certain time to get the datas back to the page.

     In the mean time if the user clicks on the 2nd option in the menu i get an Illegealstateexception on the server's console and the whole server slows down because of this and i am currently shutting down the server to get rid of the problem.

   Can any one help me to solve the problem, its very urgent.

   I am using jsp,servlets and Tomcat 3.2.3 for building my applications.

i'd suggest downgrading to jdk1.3.1 if you are using jdk1.4
