Subject Re: Session Scope-Form Bean Reset Method Executing Every Request
Date Sun, 08 May 2005 13:57:31 GMT
Hi Mehmet,

The reset method of your form bean will be executed every time it passes 
through the controller on a redirect, which is handled as a new request. 
  As such, if you do not want to have the reset method called you should 
forward your pages rather than redirecting them (I don't think this is a 
good idea for forms).

An alternative, if you want to use redirect (which I would recommend to 
circumvent the form-resubmit prompt on reload or when navigating with 
the browser's back button), is to set your formbean in the session and 
reset it manually (when needed).

Hope this helps,
