Hi,

I am using the javascript method "window.history.go(-2);" in my jsp page after doing an update.  All I wnat is for my page to reload when it goes back.

I have tried putting this between the headers to stop the page from caching:-

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

but this does not work -

Please help!

<%
response.setHeader("Cache-Control","no-cache"); //HTTP 1.1
response.setHeader("Pragma","no-cache"); //HTTP 1.0
response.setDateHeader ("Expires", -1);

<%
        // Set to expire far in the past.
        response.setHeader("Expires", "Sat, 6 May 1995 12:00:00 GMT");

        // Set standard HTTP/1.1 no-cache headers.
        response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate");

        // Set IE extended HTTP/1.1 no-cache headers (use addHeader).
        response.addHeader("Cache-Control", "post-check=0, pre-check=0");

        // Set standard HTTP/1.0 no-cache header.
        response.setHeader("Pragma", "no-cache");
%>

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

No errors?  It just doesn't work?

Odd...

What is your JSP code?

Have you tried with a simple test page?

<html>

PLACE THE CODE FOR YOUR PAGE HERE

</body>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache" />
</head>
</html>

try this

This is quite strange..

If I right click on my page and choose 'refresh' the page just shows as a blank white page. The same happens when I use your code or not.

I'm using Frames,  could this be anything to do with it?

Do the following

In your html have
==================
<html>
<head>
<title>Something</title>
   <META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
   <META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="-1">
.
.
.
.
.
</body>
       <META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
       <META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="-1">
</html>
=======================

Also in your servlet/JSP
set the response headers to be
====================
response.setHeader("Expires", "0");
response.setHeader("Pragma", "No-cache");
response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "No-cache");
