Subject Re: Multiple requests get generated for a single request
Date Thu, 09 Aug 2001 09:18:12 GMT

Are you using IE ? It sometimes has a tendency to request multiple times,
with slightly different headers each time. I've never tracked down exactly
what triggers this.

You can sometimes also get it if you have multiple submit fields on a form,
some with Javascript, and then you hit <return> ... on 08/08/2001 21:21:32

Subject:  Multiple requests get generated for a single request

Hi all
I have a servlet generating   a PDF document of approx 1. MB size streaming
its content into the browser of the client. The single request I make to
servlet spawns 2 more requests to the web-server/servlet. Can I configure
and make it only one request for this document.

Any ideas
