Form Submission and reading parameter

Hi All,
I have a login jsp page, inside which I have two text fields, Login and Password and a button for submit. This is pretty simple and working.
On choose of Submit, I want to open a new JSP page (not servlet) (because of specific requirements that on choose of login button a new page should be opened and the current page would remain as is) which should be able to read the values entered inside that form.
Is there someway, I can read those entered values here ?
one way is to submit the form and setting its action to the same jsp page, but that wont/doesnt work.
Or, Is there a possibility that I can simply read those values , say using javascript but then how to pass them onto the next JSP page?
Or, Effectively what I want to do is pass the values of the form in JSP1 to a new JSP page JSP2 and read those from there (without "get" method).

Nilesh, it is considered a no-no to post the same question in multiple forums. I'm going to request that this topic be closed. Please continue any discussion here.
