response.addHeader() method
inside the dopost() method of a servlet i have a line

response.addHeader("refresh","1");

what does the above code mean?
Hi,

It will auto refresh your page on submit after every 1 second time duration.


Cheers!!!
When the browser will see that header, the page will be refreshed after 1 second. I won't say every 1 seconds as the next time it is up to the servlet to add that header or not. See more details on this page...
Even i think its Refreshing the page in the client-Browser
Looking through the RFC 2616 for HTTP1.1 I dont see a "refresh" header defined for responses so this would depend on non standard browser behavior. See the link Ankit gave for the Meta alternative.
