Here is one option, I'm sure it's not the best, but at the beginning of every page include the following:
<%@ include file="loginCheck.jsp" %>
This page will check the session to see if the person has logged in, and if not redirect them to the login page. In addition to redirecting te person, you could also get the URL of the page that the person is on and store that in the session:
StringBuffer currentPage = HttpUtils.getRequestURL(request);
session.setAtrtibute("currentPage", currentPage);
Now in your login page, after a successfull login, check to see if there is a value in currentPage from which to erdirect the uesr back to:
Stringbuffer redirectPage = (StringBuffer)session.getAttribute("currentPage");
Hope that helps
Brian
