Hi,

I am developing a module called forgot password where password is sent to the user entered email address. After user submits the forgotpassword page, password is sent to user email address by java mailing API.

In between I have a transition page with description that "we are sending your password to your email address. Please check your mail to get your password". Then user is redirected to login page.

Now I want some waiting time between the transition and login page. Login page should come up after the specified time. What would be the best way to do that?

One solution which comes in my mind is put current Thread in sleep state for some time.

Is this ok? Or should I go with JavaScript and call JavaScript inbuilt functions for the wait?

Warm Regards
Naseem Khan

Yeah. These are jsp/xhtml pages. I thought, java thread could be one approach to achieve this. Thats why I posted it here.

I googled it and I got another way of doing this. Well, this is Java intermediate forum and this approach is based on browser's redirect feature.

I set META tag in the html title tag.



Rgds,

Something like that, or a javascript function called on page load that sleeps a while and then sets the document location to the new page. I dimly recall there was some reason to avoid the refresh header ... given my memory it might have been an IE4 bug or something. Maybe ask over in the HTML forum which way they prefer.
