Subject Re: Disable Refresh Function in IE
Date Thu, 29 Nov 2001 00:58:11 GMT
Tom,

there may be some application, where such behavior is expensive, i.e. hit
the 'acknowledge credit card charge' button twice.
The worker servlet would have the requests first, so it has to intercept the
second. As the out stream of the first is gone in the view of the browser,
you would need clever logic. I.e. rollback the transaction of the first and
execute the second as if nothing special happened.
