Disable the Back Button in browser

Reuirment-To Disable the Browser Back Button you need to use java script code in your jsp page.

For example, You have Page 1 and Page 2 .And you are navigation from page1 to page 2.now you click on browser bck button.
We need to disable this thing.We will be writing a javascript code into the page 1.We will use forward method.Let check what does it do-

forward()– method loads the next URL in the history list.This is the same as clicking the Forward button in the browser.JavaScript window history forward method provides the functionality to navigate the user to the next page visited by him. Actually history forward method works only if the user navigates to the previous page using back button of browser of history back method provided by JavaScript. This back history navigation enables the forward history navigation. JavaScript History object belongs to JavaScript window object that allows you to access the forward method using window.history.forward. You can also access the forward method directly as history.forward.

<script type ="text/javascript">
function stopGoingBack()
    <title> Using the forward method of the History object</title>
    <form name=form1>
    Click on the button to go to the forward browser page.
    <input type="button" value="Go Forward" onload='stopGoingBack()'>

Call this method on onload on the body of page.
