I assume u talking about using Java Server Pages..

Well the easiest is to use the session variables

Just google off for session.setAttribute or session.getAttribute.. should be
good enuff to help you.

Few things to to consider, session will last typically across the same
thread of the explorer, i,e. if you press Ctrl-N, most likely the session
will carry across the new window...

In order to reset the session... use session.invalidate
