When saveToken() method is invoked, struts will generate a unique key/token and store it into httpsession. The unique key will also be stored as a hidden field (form submition) or as a parameter in url link.

Once the form submitted, the method isTokenValid() will verify the submitted unique key (the hidden field) with the unique key value stored in httpsession. If both value match means 1st time submittion, so will call removeToken() to remove the unique key from httpsession.

If the user refesh page or resubmit the form using back button, the isTokenValid() will trigger again, coz the unique key has been removed from httpsession, the verification fail. This mean the form is resubmitted.

Hope this able to help you understand.

Boon Leng
