Hi,

I'm using Javascript with JSP and after running a query I am using the Go- back method in Javascript.

The problem is when the page goes back it needs to refresh so the update will take place.

Please help

Rather than use the history, you can get the page that called your query JSP from the Referrer header and redirect to it. This will cause the calling page to reload/refresh.

Your JSP would look something like this:

<%

refpage = request.getHeader("referrer");

/**
   * Query stuff
   */

response.redirect(refpage);

%>

I think I know what you are saying and I have tried doing it that way i.e. re-run the query but I canot get it to work!


I did get go back and refresh thing to work once,  I think I used something like

<meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache" />
<meta http-equiv="expires" content="-1" />

on the page but for some reason this does not refresh the page,  all I what is for the page to refresh itself!  How hard can this be?

Maybe if you give me the code you are using at current, and I can probably solve the problem.

Most likely your Cache settings are not set to check for new version of the page upon every visit. Look at your Tools - > Internet Options -> Temporary Internet File Settings (if you are using IE).
