JSP work with Javascript (Pain!)

as we all know, JSP is server page and Javascript is for client only.
but somehow I really need them to work together
the situation is I have a pop up window, and it will pass something back to the original window using javascript
and on the original window, I need to store that value in a bean, or a variable on JSP (java variable)
and body know how to do this?
maybe with cookie?..or?

The only way to get Javascript to communicate back to the server is to post a request. Your popup can do this in a hidden frame, or to itself before closing.
