I'm not sure that this is the correct question.

I found that Netscape (4.7) gave me this message frequently.  My impression
was that I got it whenever I used a POST-method button but didn't have any
parameters to send with it.  I got it from pages that weren't produced by
sendRedirect(), too.  HOWEVER... my version of Netscape is configured to
reject cookies, so it's possible that my servlet engine (which isn't
Websphere) is doing something like sendRedirect() internally to do session
tracking.

Internet Explorer didn't have this problem.  So I changed my code to use GET
instead of POST to accommodate Netscape.  But that's just a quick fix to get
version 1.0 out of the door; haven't really had time to analyze the problem
properly.

Not much of an answer, I know, but maybe it will flip a switch somewhere...

Is there any reason why a sendRedirect() doesn't when invoked by a getPost?
If I do it with a GET, smooth sailing... if I use a POST, I get a "Document
contained no data" alert from Netscape....
