Auto Page Refresh in JSP Application

In this article, we will learn how to develop Auto Page Refresh Application in JSP. Please read our previous article where we develop Page Hits Counter Application in JSP. Here, we are creating autoRefresh.jsp page. Here we are using setIntHeader() method to set Refresh Header to simulate the current time. This method sends the header “Refresh” back to the browser along with an integer value which indicates a time interval in seconds.

autoRefresh.jsp
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
 pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>
<%@ page import="java.io.*,java.util.*"%>
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="ISO-8859-1">
<title>Insert title here</title>
</head>
<body>
 <form>

  <h2>Auto Refresh Example</h2>
  <%
  // Set refresh, autoload time as 1 seconds
  response.setIntHeader("Refresh", 1);
  // Get current time
  Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar();
  String am_pm;
  int hour = calendar.get(Calendar.HOUR);
  int minute = calendar.get(Calendar.MINUTE);
  int second = calendar.get(Calendar.SECOND);
  if (calendar.get(Calendar.AM_PM) == 0)
   am_pm = "AM";
  else
   am_pm = "PM";
  String CT = hour + ":" + minute + ":" + second + " " + am_pm;
  out.println("Current Time: " + CT + "\n");
  %>
 </form>
</body>
