I think U can go for Hidden Fields or Cookies,But Cookies is not recommended for better security,So go for Hidden fields.That's Best.

Just don't use hidden form fields to remember stuff like credit card information or any other type of sensitive data (unless you encrypt it or something).

I realize that they you already gave the solution. I was just trying to give some helpful advice about how to use your solution, since it didn't really appear as if the person is all that familiar with hidden form fields (or else they would have known the answer to their question). If more information is needed about how to encrypt the data in the form fields, I'd be glad to help.

Until Rani tells us why she needs to do this, there is no point in debating the best method.

I could think of a reason why Rani wants to do that. Well for starters he might have been instructed not to put them in the session as I was asked to. Well reason being, we could go up loading the session with a lot of data. A lot of users means the app servers maintaining a lot of data in Session. So if the app server fails because of this, it not only takes the current application offline but all the the other application installed on the server. So thats the main issue I think.
One could just suggest to upgrade the servers capacity. However if one can avoid the session, why not do it?
It could have saved us a lot of trouble to just use the session , however we implemented the hard way without using sessions

Yes, there are plenty of reasons.
What matters is his reason.

Without knowing that, it's hard to say what the best course of actions would be.

We could certainly speculate forever.
It looks like this person has moved on since posting the question anyway.

Hello All,

I am really sorry for not getting in touch with the thread since I was out of town, Ramkumar was rite I was told not to use session and I can think of some request parameters to set the values and send it across the pages without session


Thanks you so much for everyone who replied

Again I ask, why?

Were you given a reason? Makes no sense to me.

Sorry about that, We are loading the session with lot of other attributes like HashTables and Vectors, This is just to pass few other attributes and my TL wants to exclude those from session, Is this makes sense or do you need more info, I am really sorry about this I didn't know how to explain it

Thank you.

It makes absolutely no sense.
There are some valid reasons for not using sessions and this isn't one of them. If you are already loading the sessions up anyway, why add complexity to the app just to keep a few small attirbutes out?

One reason that comes to my mind on not using the sessions is the complexity in handling sessions in a distributed (or replicated) environment.

It would be great if you could you post other reasons for not using the session.
