How (and what's the best way to) do I force a refresh of a page/the browser from inside an object that's called? Can I do it if the object only has a Session object? or does it need the response object (to set headers)? Is there another waay to do it?

Here's what i have:

JSP reads a parameter "logout" and pulls an object from the Session "LoginHandler". It then calls "logout()" on it.

Now what I'd prefer is that the JSP only call logout() and the page kicks them out to a login page. But I'm guessing I'd have to either find a way to pass the response object to the LoginHandler or have the JSP set the refresh header (or change the date) itself. Is there a way I'm missing?

I'm confused about your terminology.

When you say "refresh" are you really meaning "redirect"?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
