I'm not sure I understand what you mean. The case you describe is very close
to mine, and so I would like to prevent the user from making twice the
addition on refresh:
I've got one first form, Form1, which calls Action1:
<action path="/action1" name="Form1" type="actions.Action1" scope="session"
    <forward name="ok" path="page2.jsp" redirect="true"/>

but once the user is on page2, if he makes a refresh, action1 is called
again.... and the data added by action1 is added once more....

What didn't I understand?
