Hi Ranchers,

I am having a HTML page, which is devided as frames. There is 3 frames in this page named as first,left and content. In content frame I have a login page. Here when user clicks on login button, In content frame, some other jsp page should gets displayed(say the jsp page is welcome.jsp).

For this, Previously I have used



But the problem here is..If I login once..it is coming properly. If I click on some other button in another frame and logout..Now in case if I login again an error is coming like..

HTTP Status 500

description The server encountered an internal error() that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

exception

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Cannot forward after response has been committed.
...
...

As shown above the error is coming..So what I did means instead of using sendRedirect() method, I simply assigned the frame location to "/abc/welcome.jsp". Now it is working fine..But I just want to know what was the problem with sendRedirect() method. In which case, the above error will come?

Can anybody make me known..??

Thanks in Advance,
Shashi.

The exception itself gives the reason.
And response has been committed means that you have already written the response to the client , so now you dont have control over it.
Please see this FAQ entry for more information.


Hope this helps

Hi Shashi,

It'll be better if you use

<jsp:forward page ="("/abc/welcome.jsp"/>

in place of

response.sendRedirect("/abc/welcome.jsp");

after checking all the necessary conditions for the login stuff.
This tag doesn't notify the browser about the new page. The new page is opened but you need to notice that the address in the address bar remains the same.

Thank You,
Nishant

Mr Ghorpade,

Can you please answer to the topic...? If you don't have that much of ability or kind nature to help somebody, you better be in peace. I find most of your forums to be useless....!

Thank you

Do you have any good reason to say that? If yes please let me know.
But anyways I dont think you are supposed to tell what I should do.

I dont have any forum
