Passing info in a session

I am not sure if I am posting in the correct group or not but,
Can anyone give me some lead on sessions? What I want to do is pass information from one HTML screen to another. This info changes depending on the person's ID.
Thanks

Hi Suresh -
There are *lots* of potentially appropriate forums -- it all depends on what techniques best help you achieve your goal.
The most popular approach to this is probably using cookies -- small text files written and stored on the client that tell a server if a person has visited before and possibly what they've done so far, etc. The Servlets forum would be the best place to look fpr help.

Suresh,
You definitely want to be looking at servlets/jsp's where you can use HttpSessions (into which you can stuff serializable data). I'm going to move this to the servlet forum.
