As a jsp page (or servlet) runs, it writes data to an output buffer which
periodically
gets flushed down the network connection to a user's browser. The webserver/
jsp-engine does *not* wait for the entire page to be generated before
starting
to send (there are all sorts of buffering-control features in the servlet
spec if you look for them).

However, there are *some* operations which require that no output has yet
been sent to the user,
eg response.sendRedirect().

If you happen to put these sorts of method calls (or <jsp:xyz> tag that
generates such a call)
"too far down" your jsp page or servlet code, so that data has already been
flushed to the client, 
then the requested operation cannot be performed, and an exception is
thrown.

The solution is to make sure any such commands are evaluated *first* in your
code.

Hope this helps..
