Getting Values in JSPs

I am having a jsp called in a frame, which in turn loads a child jsp on a button click.
On this child, i am getting some data from the user. This jsp has a 'back' button that takes him back to the parent. I want to store data on the child as well as the parent and call another jsp.
Where should i store all this data?

Store the values in session -- this way they will be accessible across all pages of your application.

to store an object in session, call:
session.setAttribute(String name, Object Value);
To retrieve an object from session, call:
Object blah = session.getAttribute(String name);
Hope the Helps!
