What is messes up in my case is the back button. Back still
works, but if I were able to do a redirect the URL would not end
up being stacked on itself. If I could use a redirect, when I hit
back I could go from say order entry back to the menu, which
makes sense in most cases. It doesn't make sense to go back
to the same application.

I prefer to go to the controlling Servlet first rather than to the
JSP, which only handles output formatting. I tried all different
way to go to the JSP and then redirect to the Struts action
Servlet, but it was always convoluted compared with the
simplicity of going to the controlling Servlet first.

In this case, I may be able to "fix" the back button with Java script
or in my application controller. A combination of both may also
work. Right now it is low on the list of priorities. Also, many would
not consider it wrong. I notice in your application when I hit prev
followed by next, I have to go back through the previous record
when I hit back. My expectation is that it should take me to the
prior task or menu.

Although "redirect" is an HTTP concept, the activation of a JSP is
controlled by Websphere (or TOMCAT), or Struts.  The following link at
Web site points to a basic inquiry and maintenance program.  Would that
an example of what you're trying to achieve?

The URL remains the same.  But links on the page activate other forms?
