My application env is Tomcat 5.0, Struts.

Currently when user logs out and hits the back button of browser it show the page error.html page which I have mentioned in web.xml. this html page has a link to

Right now when user clicks the above link it does not take him anywhere and stays there.

I want to send user back to login page if he is logged out. but i cannot give link to instead of because this page is being used by other server errors too and it takes user back to main menu page.

Where should I add code to check if user has logged out and send him back to login page if he clicks link in error page?

I have tried to debug it....but it's not going to the action where I can write some code to check just refreshes the same page.

Please advise.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
