I have a server client type system running and i need a way to automatically refresh a jsp page so that new orders from clients will appear on the server page.  Is this possible with jsp?
Thanks

Try add meta tag like:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" Content="20">

where the page will auto-refresh on every 20 seconds.

also try add this at the top of your JSP pages, to remove the page cache if necessary:

<%
      if (request.getProtocol().compareTo("HTTP/1.0") == 0)
      {
            response.setHeader("Pragma", "no-cache");
      }
      else if (request.getProtocol().compareTo("HTTP/1.1") == 0)
      {
            response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "no-cache");
      }
      
      response.setDateHeader("Expires", 0);
%>

The code above remove the page cache, so that each time you load this page, it will get the content from server, instead of from cache.

Hope this is clear. cheers
