Back button behavior... STATE_SAVING_METHOD?

Question asked by csiege on Aug 15, 2006
Hi,

I have noticed the behavior of using the browsers back button in the web client.  Sometimes it can get the user confused (when the server thinks the user is still on a different page).

I found the following on http://www.jsf-resources.com/

In many cases when using JSF, you?ll notice that the back button does not behave as expected. This is due to the fact that the state is saved on the server, and when you use the back button, the server still thinks you are on a different page. Adding the following will save the state on the client side, making the back button behave in a more expected manner. 

<context-param>
<param-name>javax.faces.STATE_SAVING_METHOD</param-name>
<param-value>client</param-value>
</context-param>

What would be the effect of doing this with Alfresco?  Is there a specific reason it is set to server in the web.xml file?

Thanks!

Chris
