am working on a seam based application. It also uses ajax4jsf for partial rendering of the page. The home page of my application has a list which has an dropdown. This dropdown allows the users to change the status of an item. Also, the list has a link colum. On click of this link, i navigate to another page. I do some editing here which would change the status on the back end. Now from page 2 after doing the update i click on browser back button. The page is reloaded from the cache. I would want to hit the server to get the lastest page 1 which should show the updated status. I have tried META, client-side, server-side. I also tried to write a hiddenText and make a change on it onload and then render the list. It still wont help. Could you please suggest me how to proceed.
