Hello All. I have recently been doing a lot of ASP.NET because of a project at work. They have a feature that I am not sure if it is inherent in JSP. I can do what is called a PostBack. I can't describe how this works because frankly I don't know. What I do know is it makes life really easy for me when I need to post a message back to the same page I am on.
So basically, if I had a label on my web page, and I click a button, I can assign that label a new text string and it reflects back on the same page. I hope I am either making some sense, or other ASP.NET people know what I am talking about. Anyway, how is this same feature accomplished in JSP?
Thanks.

I don't know the full semantics of the PostBack, but how would it be different from a forward to the originating url?
