Hi,

I would want display a custom message to the user before redirecting to a different url.

i use




1)I thought redirecting the user , the browser automatically alert the user that the browser is making a new request.
It didnt happen Y?

2) Is there a way to display a message and then redirect.

1. Redirecting is automatic, browsers don't display any message that they are redirecting the user.
2. You can use html meta tag to display a message and then redirect like given here...

Ankit,
thanks for replying.

but dont you think its a security risk , as we know the sendRedirect is as good as(similar to) a new request intiated by the client.


Dont you think this could be misused , say alluring the customer into say (in case of a shopping cart) checkout something that he never wanted in the first place.

Just wondering or am i too paranoid

A. Soon people will stop using such websites
B. If a person doesn't pay attention while paying what they are paying for, then its their own fault...
