Hi
I have a page(banner) on a third party site and I want to track how many users are using that page and successfully booking through that page. The page is hosted on my server not on third party site. The request to that page is via a servlet.
There are few options I have thought about but there are some advantages and disadavantages. I want to know which is better solution.
1. creating a table and updating it whenever user hits the servlet from the page.
2. ServletContext.
Thanks in advance.

Wouldn't it be easiest just to use your web server's log files? You can configure Apache to record referer URLs. I would think with that you would have all you need.
A simple Perl script (or Java program) could extract the information you needed from the log.
