Hidden Value in JSP

I have hidden field in the JSP page - its a page in the wizard
The wizard has got series of steps 1, 2, 3 , 4...etc
Step 3 and 5 are mostlly similar, pages in the step 3 and 5 share the same base class where the hidden field is getting created.

The problem: by default the value of the gidden field is empty "" and based on the button click in the page the hidden field value is changed. This works well in the page 3, but when I go to the page 5, I expect it to be empty by default, but somehow it is preserving the value which had been assigned in the page 3. Why it is preserving the value in the page 3 although I am creating new instance while loading the page5. Kindly help me to know what could be the reason for this and how to clear it off

Any pointer much appreciated

I think we'll need to see a bit of code. Especially the part where you set the new value, and the part where you get the value from JSP.

Moving to the JSP forum.
As Satou mentioned, you'll probably need to post some code when it gets there.
