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>
<table border="0" width="90%" cellpadding="5" align=center>
<td align="left" width="30%"><b>Company name</b></td>

<input type="button" name="submitForm" value="Save Details" onClick="validate(this.form)">
<input type="button" name="reset" value="Reset">
There is a javascript in the head, which is working with onClick="validate(this.form)".
New script which may be causing a trouble is added to the text field and the form tag,

<input type="reset" name="reset" value="Reset">

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?
