Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

    String param = request.getParameter( "whatever" ) ;
    if( param != null && param.equals( "value" ) )
<script language="JavaScript">
    parent.leftframename.location.reload() ;

hi Tim,

I got small logical problem.
After performing certain action, the servlet redirect to JSP page. This is the redirect code.


How should I know in the right.jsp page that it is been redirect from xyz servlet and I need to perform leftframe refresh. Only if redirect is done from xyz serlvet it has to perform refresh on leftframe.

I tried this with yout above code, but didnt worked.

Did you mean:



"whatever", not "rwhatever"?

can you post the html for your root frame?  Is your left frame called "leftframename"?  In my example code...
