Default reload parent page from included page

Hello everyone,

Is it possible to reload the enclosing .jsp page from a included .jsp page?

i.e if I have a home page home.jsp and it has the line

<%@ include file="../lib/login.jsp" %>

can I reload/refresh home.jsp by clicking a button from login.jsp?

Thanks in advance!

Would have been better to ask this in the JSP forum, but never mind.

Look, when you use <%@ include ...%> in JSP, the *TEXT* of the specified file is pulled into and becomes *TEXT* in the CURRENT PAGE.

In other words, by the time that the Java Compiler actually converts the page into a ".class" file for the server to work from, the fact that some code came from a <%@ include %> is LONG SINCE FORGOTTEN!!!

So, in the HTML that is sent to the browser, there's really NO DIFFERENCE between HTML generated from the main page and HTML generated from the <%@ include %>!

In short, you would do this exactly the same way you would any place in the code.
    <form><input type=button value="Reload Page" onclick="location.reload();"></form>

Or something along those lines.
