I am currently developing a web application and trying to implement FrontController design pattern. FrontController delegates incoming requests to a RequestHelper, the helper intern creates a command based on the url-pattern. The command executes and returns the next view. My problem is When the command executes it gets a list of items for view, the client selects one of the items for further processing. When the user selects an item it generates a new command based on the url-pattern and the list is no more accessible. How to keep the list even after executing a new command. I dont want to use a "HttpSession" or "ServletContext". Is there any alternative or a pattern for preserving the list for feature. Please help me.

Why not? That's what they're for.

That's like saying "I don't want to use a hammer to bang in a nail".

Hopefully the OP just meant they don't want to use it directly? In which case give an attribute map to the controller and/or command.

I'm hoping so. So many times in these forums we've seen the admonition to use the session wisely twisted into "Don't use the session!".
