Values are re-inserted on refresh

i'm using jsp inside a JAVA script function to insert records in Oracle database.
Every thing looks perfect until i hit the refresh button on my browser.

Each time i hit refresh, duplicate values r inserted in the database.

How can i avoid that?

I never heard suck thing.

But your problem is a common one. Some possible workarounds :
  • redirect the browser to another page
  • reset the form after submit
  • note in a session variable that the given page already sent data and reject all further
  • check in the database for similar data


RE: Values are re-inserted on refresh

It reallty is a very bad idea to use client-side code to do derver-side work. I wouldn't use work-arounds but change my code. The least you must do IMO is to direct this work to a Servlet which will do the INSERT instead of javascript.
