Hi Guys

I am trying to handle 100 of records and want to split them into pages (so only 50 records per page with back/forward links). Im not entirely sure how I should code this. I was thinking of placing all records into a list and then simply use get to call the records. What do you guys think?

See the JSP FAQ entry on paging.

Thanks, a good read. But how should code it whilst storing the data in a session ? I am thinking of getting all the records and storing them into a session and then paginating, but that isn't efficient as the servlet might need to load 1000s of records so it would be better to load only the records the user requests.. So an alternative method is checking the session for the requested records, then the DB(if request data not found in session). Does that sound like a good solution?

If you want to balance memory load with DB access, caching is a good idea. Just be sure that it's fairly configurable so that you can easily adjust it to suit the conditions.
