Everytime the user logs in, get the user info from cookies(or session IDs) and store user info along with requested page in a database of recently visited urls.
You can also store all urls in cookies and send it to client.

I suggest using an Entry *Filter* to achieve this since
1. The logging can be directed to wherever you want it to be (file/ db)
2. You can selectively log certain JSPs only
3. You can stop the logging at any time you want it by turning it off in web.xml
In you web.xml, define the filter like
<filter>
<filter-name>EntryFilter</filter-name>
<description></description>
<filter-class>filters.EntryFilter</filter-class>
</filter>
and in the EntryFilter's doFilter method, add the code to perform the logging.
