In order to add some data I forward my page to a servlet which calls a bean to add new entry and finally servlet forwards to a new page. If at that  page user refreshes page then a duplicate entry is entered in the database. What to do to avoid it

After processing, use response.sendRedirect() to forward to the next  page.
This load the page from a new request, and refreshing the page will only reload the page without resubmitting the data.

Thomas is correct...  Just to clarify his point (please don't accept this comment as an answer), you do:

  Form.jsp     ---POST--->    Processing.jsp    ---REDIRECT--->   Thanks.jsp

Then the user can't go "back" to the Processing.jsp, so can't resubmit thir form :-)
