Hi everybody,
I have a problem....Say i have a first jsp which has some text boxes for search criteria...when the user enters some text and submits the form the user goes to the next corresponding page ,but now when he clicks on the browsers back button.....and come back to the first jsp the search values are gone....is there any way of retaining those values.........
a few i know are they can be put in session or
they can be transferred back and fro using hidden variables or
using cookies(not recommended as it lies on the client side).
So can anybody let me know is there any other way fo doing it....immediate help appreciated....
Thans
