I am facing the same problem, and am interested to implement your solution.
Can you please share your code?


Many thanks

I solved the doubleclick issues with servlet-filter:
Filter sets the session-wide flag and requested URL at the begin of each
request and clears them at the end.
If second request is coming during the previous one is in execution, the
filter is doing redirect with few seconds delay to originally requested page
(in case not IE) or HttpServletResponse.SC_NO_CONTENT (in case of IE). I
tried some other headers but didn't succeed, so thats why using redirect
like httpResp.setHeader( "Refresh", "3; URL="+
I'm not sure if this is best approach, but it has worked for us.

You'll need to synchronize access to your session objects - there

Alternative is to have everything client side, then you don't have any
problems on the server.

Except the performance, of course ;)
