Class BrowserHistoryHelper


public abstract class BrowserHistoryHelper extends Object
The point of this is to improve experience of browser history (back/forward/refresh buttons), but ensure there is no more redirects then necessary. Ideally we want to: - Remove all POST requests from browser history, because browsers don't automatically re-send them when click "back" button. POSTS in history causes unfriendly dialogs and browser "Page is expired" pages. - Keep the browser URL to match the flow and execution from authentication session. This means that browser refresh works fine and show us the correct form. - Avoid redirects. This is possible with javascript based approach (JavascriptHistoryReplace). The RedirectAfterPostHelper requires one redirect after POST, but works even on browser without javascript and on old browsers where "history.replaceState" is unsupported.
