Use javascript function settimeout('<func name>',<msec>);

in the function submit the page to the desired action url.

<script>
setTimeout('refreshPage()', 25 * 60 * 1000); // for 30 mins

function refreshPage(){
        document.frm.action ="something.do"l;
        document.frm.submit();
}
</script>


In your action do whtever checking you need and then redirect back to the same jsp page.

Can it be done with jsp code...

Murali MurugesanFull stack Java developerCommented:
what do you mean by jsp code?

Refreshing the jsp page is part of client side and not server side and javascript does it perfectly.

alternatively u can try using

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="5; URL=<%=request.getContextPath()%>/something.do">
