I wonder if anyone else has run across this and, if so, how do I avoid it�..

I have two JSP pages (A and B). Both have a CANCEL button and both have code in their ACTION like this:

if (this.isCancelled(request)) {
return mapping.findForward("returnToPreviousPage");

There are links on page A that take the user to page B. What I am seeing is that when the user selects the CANCEL button on page B they are taken back to page A (correct so far). But then in the ACTION for page A where I check this.isCancelled(request) I end up in the THEN clause and go back to the page that opened A. I don�t want this � I want to go back from B to A and stop there.

Can anyone help me?

- Ben
