BACK link in jsp pages

In my jsp pages there is a 'back' link that goes to the previous page, the think is that the previous page is not static, I mean, a single results page can have diferent back links destinations depending from where you come from.
When there are diferent levels of back
where can I store the back url ?


home page -> result page 1 -> comment page -> user page -> result page 2 ->
comment page 2

result page are the same jsp but with diferent back urls, same for comment page.

How can I manage this?

I'm trying with beans in session for each jsp but I don't know if it is a good solution.

Storing per-user info that needs to be retained across requests is exactly the type of job that the session is for.
