I am developing a application where the user reads a chapter which contains number of pages. The pages navigates by pagination functionality. Here i am doing bookmarks and adding favourites using servlet.,i.e.i will store the subject name, chapter and current page of the chapter he is reading into database using session.getAttribute.Also i will get the url name using below code
String reqUrl = req.getRequestURL().toString();
String queryString = req.getQueryString(); // d=789
if (queryString != null) {
reqUrl += "?"+queryString;
return reqUrl;

and get into servlet using session.getAttribute method.

NOw i had stored all the fields. My problem is that when want to see the book mark page or add my favourite page i am not directing to correct bookmarked page and my favouritepage. I am passing the myfavourite page through href. Since i stored the values in sessions i am getting this p[roblem . How can i overcome this problem?

My goal is that i have to add a page that is in pagination to my add favourties list that stores in database. When i retirve or want to view my added page page how can i do it?Kindly help me.

I don't understand. The URL should have the key so you can retrieve everything else and stick it into the session again.
