Goal

The user requirement is to preserve the original URL on the browser even after redirecting. The redirect should happen in the background and the browser should show the same URL. When you use the 'redirect' Server Application Function (SAF), you are asking the Web Server to respond to the initial request by asking the browser to request again at the new URL. In this case, browser and user will be aware of the new URI. So the "redirect" SAF is not suitable for this requirement.
