Hi All -

I'm developing a simple web application using JSPs and Servlets. I need to store and retrieve parameters selected (such as Category, Date etc) by user. I'm not sure which one is better: HttpSession or java beans. I would appreciate any guidance.

Thanks in advance.

It's not an either/or choice. You create the Java beans containing your data and store them in one of the scope contexts -- one of which can be session scope.
