Hi together :-)
i have a J2EE Application running on WebSphere App.Server V5. I use a FrontController (a servlet)wich handles the login procedure and session management. For example there are three jsp pages....
Every request goes through the FrontController!!!
Now my problem...
when i enter username and password into the form on login.jsp and press enter the data goes to FrontController wich takes the username and password and checks it. when everything is allright a new session is created (in the FrontController) and the requested site is displayed (start.jsp).
Some smoked cigarettes later, the session is timed out...when i refresh start.jsp a new session is created, because the username and password are cached. I DON'T WANT THAT. How can i solve this???
I added the following headers in every *.jsp file
response.addHeader("Expires:","Mon, 01 Jan 2001 00:00:00 GMT");
response.addHeader("Cache-Control","no-cache, must-revalidate");
response.addHeader("Cache-Control","post-check=0, pre-check=0");
also i tried this
response.setHeader("Pragma", "no-cache");
response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "no-cache");
but the username and password fields still holds the can i reset this fields to default, is it possible!!!
I use IE Version 6.0.2800.1106
Best regards

to specify the timeout use setMaxInactiveInterval(int interval) on the session object (in seconds)
also i suspect that saving the values of the login fields is being done client side (ie on your browser) so you disable this in internet options.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
