hi, I'm using a JSP page to call a servlet which accesses a database and retrieves some data. on my JSP pages, I want to show 5 sets of data on each page, where users can see the next set of data by clicking a button or a link to the net page. my question is that when I connect to database, and get all of the data, can I store the data somewhere as an object so that for the next set of data on another page, I don't have to open the database connection again? Would sessions in this case solve the problem? answers would be appreciated.
