Passing Parameters with navigation rules

I have an action method that generates a value that needs to be passed to the next page. The method in the end returns a String and is mapped as a navigation rule to the corresponding but during the method execution a value is generated. Normally I could store this in session and read it on the corresponding redirected page but the client I am working for is not allowing any kind of server side session to be used so I need to send it as a request parameters. Does anyone know how to do this?

Use the following snippent to get the request object and then set the required information in request scope

HttpServletRequest request = (HttpServletRequest) FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getExternalContext()
