thanks for the reply... I haven't tried it with IE (see browser wars thread
:-) )

The reason I'm looking at this is I'm trying to develop a pattern (a
template, if you like) to provide a "quck start" to development.  We've done
a lot with JSP anf HTMLs, jumping from page to page but we'd like to call a
servlet and have it forward to jsps, HTMLs, etc.  The business logic (and
navigation) will stay with the servlet and JavaBeans while the presentation
(and some DB access) will be done in JSP.  OK, not overly creative but
definately effective.  

Early on, we adapted a model of "n-tier" development because our staff is
mostly RPG/400 programmers with some HTML experience.  Adapting the n-tier
model gives us the flexibility to to leverage current skillsets while paving
the way to developing more skills, especially in Java. Utilizing patterns
can leverage the knowledge from our more senior people.

Any thoughts or ideas are greatly appreciated!!!!

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....
