How can you track session using Hidden Fields?

I would recommend you get a servlet book if you do not know this. This is in just every servlet book.

Hidden form fields are fields added to an HTML form that are not displayed in the client's browser. You can include hidden form fields with HTML like this:
INPUT TYPE=HIDDEN NAME ="ORDERNO" VALUE = "1000"
These fields are sent back to the server when the form that contains them is submitted.
The disadvantage with this type of technique is that it works only for a sequence of dynamically generated forms.

Even if the FORMs are not generated dynamically, the hidden fields can be:
<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="ORDER_NO" VALUE="<%= myObject.getOrderNumber() %>">

that's easy :--
<input type = "hidden" name="go" value=" what everyou wanna put here">
recieve this in another jsp page by using :--
<%
String get = request.getParameter("go");
%>
<%= get %>
