My problem is,I want to know how to stop users from seeing previous pages by using the back button. Like if someone fills out form fields and then submits and leaves the PC and then another user comes along and hits the back button then they can see all the past users sensitive info in the form fields.
It seems the browser is retrieving the cached pages.How can I stop this from happening. I'd like to have it that if a person tried to hit the back button then they are taken to a warning page telling them that they can't view this page and give them a link to the start page.
I've tried various methods to solve this problem but none seem to work properly.
Could anyone tell me how to tell a jsp not to use the cached pages?
I tried that and it still isn't working.
I must be doing something wrong.
Where exactly should I put the code you gave?
Should it be in the page I want not to be cached?
So when the user presses the back button this page doesn't appear?

be sure to warn users of the warning message they will get from their browsers....
