How post() methods serve the purpose of non-idempotence.
posted 2 years ago
I have a doubt regarding idempotence. I read in head-first servlets and jsp that post() methods are non-idempotent as per specification.
Say, I have a link which calls a post() method that updates some thing in database. Does it mean that if I click twice or thrice, it will invoke only once.
