Hiding URL String

We are attempting to hide the URL string in the location bar of the browser in a JSP for "pseudo-security" reasons. The desired result is to emmulate a frameset. Is this possible? If so - how?

I don't know about "emulate" a frameset. Why not just use a frameset? The frames in a frameset can be populated by servlets or JSPs just as easily as static HTML files. I do this all the time.
