Hi all,

I've got a problem with my jsp.
I've added some scripts and since then neither the reset button is not clearing the data from the form boxes nor rfresh button.

Can you tell me what's wrong?

<form name="tableform" action="/TaxiGlobe/servlet/SaveNewCustomerServlet" method="post"
onSubmit="return false;">

<hr width=90%>
<font color=red><b><center>Required fields *</center></b></font>

thanks, but it is still not working.

Can it something to do with a session?
Even when I close and open my application the last data is still there?
What can it be?

> the last data is still there?

Yes, you display data from the customer bean. Do you expect to see blank fields?
