1. Don't be so impatient
2. As you have observed, a simple redirect has to be a GET - if you dont want to use the URL string, you will need something else.
I suggested same(by using hidden fields and jQuery submit) to my boss. But he said " Something Else ".
If you get something else please tell me.

OK, how about this - use a shared database to store the information you need to transfer, stored under random unique key. Use only this key in the URL string. Of course the other web app will have to be modified to recognize the GET with the key and use it to recover the data.
That way the URL reveals nothing of the internals.
An alternate to a database for sharing the information would be a serialized Java object written to a common file space. A serialized object works just fine as a substitute for a session as long as you can preserve the unique identifier.
