Spring form question.

I'm looking for a way in Spring to persist form values beyond the initial post request. I post a form to a controller (not a form controller) that then calls another form and ends up at a third page where I'd like to print out the values of the original form. That's a simplification. Right now, I'm coding by hand extracting all the form values and putting them into the session object so I have access to them on the third page. I'm thinking, Spring, super-popular framework, must have an easier way to do this.

Thank You!

Might want to take a look at Spring Webflow

The Web Flow module is a MVC extension that allows you to define Controllers using a domain-specific-language. This language is designed to model user interactions that require several requests into the server to complete, or may be invoked from different contexts.

Dear, Using command pattern(Define command class and command name) in context fil(since request object directly binds with command object) you can get those form values any places in web tier. I would suggest you please go through spring's coommand pattern.

Please let me know if you need nay further help- Manoj
