Hi Sachin,

I have a query : if you are doing AJAX call then why you are doing page refresh (which is similar to form submission).

you should understand the AJAX & Form submission concept first.

Again , can you elaborate your problem in detail ?

Hi Dipti

I have project tab panel in that i display AO table.from this project tab panel i called servlet throgh ajax on event. in servlet i make changes on AO table that changes should be reflecated on project tab panel from which i called servlet

database get modified but that changes is not shown on project ab panel After refreshing that page it show modified changes

 var data;
		var baseURL=document.getElementById("baseURL").value;
		$("#issuetable tbody").sortable(
			stop: function( event, ui ) {
				var draggedItem = $(ui.item).find('td').eq(1).text();
				var destinationDI=$(ui.item).prev().find('td').eq(1).text();				
				  url: "${baseurl}/plugins/servlet/WBS_DNDUpdate",
				  type: "GET",
					data: { source: draggedItem, destination: destinationDI },
				    dataType: "json",

this is Ajax script which call servlet after event

on servlet
String url = ComponentAccessor.getApplicationProperties().getString(APKeys.JIRA_BASEURL)+"/browse/TEST";
		System.out.println("==url=="+ url);

use this code for redirecting to project tab panel . the class of panel get executed after redirecting but updated data is not able to send to .vm file of that panel

so that updated data is not show on tab panel .

after manually refreshing page it shows.

Hi @Sachin,

The problem here is the ajax call you are making .

a) Just do a direct form submission with form tag , which in turn will refresh the complete page.

b) please see $.get() in the link if it can be helpful :


Use this ,

var vBrowser ='${req.contextPath}/secure/AddProject.jspa?projectstr='+selectedProjectStr,"_self");



instead of jQuery.ajax()

Hi Dipti

                  url: "${baseurl}/plugins/servlet/WBS_DNDUpdate",
                  type: "GET",
                    data: { source: draggedItem, destination: destinationDI },
                    success:  function() {location.reload();},
                    dataType: "json",
