There is also a logicsheet for that -- response.xsl.

Please be aware that sending a redirect command to the client *after*
any other data will cause an unpredictable result. This is because the
output is not buffered and thus cannot be cancelled.

It is almost impossible for the redirect to be the first data sent.

So, I would strongly suggest not to do it.

If you *do* want to update the database from an XSP, you have to merge
all possible outcomes into one page. *I* would consider that extremely
bad practice.
