Session Management Question

Guys ,
I have some questions regarding session Management.
After a user successfully logs in through the login page('login.jsp'), we show a main Navigation menu (menu.jsp').
From the navigation menu user can open various instances of Browser, each having a separate functionality. Since I open browser instances from the main naviagtion page, they have same session id.
In each JSP page - say REFERER , I keep a check if the session is valid. If session has expired, I forward him to the 'login.jsp' page
Question :
How do I send the user to the same JSP page - REFERER , after successful login ?
I will appreciate your help .

pass the name/path/id of the current REFERER when forwarding to login.jsp (as part of the request) and use that to forward the user to the appropriate page after successful login
