hi group,
i have one jsp page with some input fields and a submit button.
i've different links to reach this page. and my requirement is that if i am reaching at this page first time then the field should be blank otherwise it should show the values which i've entered previously.
could anybody tell me the way to proceed....
thank you

You'll need to implement some sort of session tracking, to keep track of first-time visitors to the page, and repeat visitors. An easy way to do this is to use set a session variable (e.g. session.setAttribute()). If you're wanting your form values to persist throughout pages, you can use a JavaBean to store the values as the user navigates through the pages.
