extending jimmacks answer

in page 1 set the values as
<input type = "hidden" name = "myVar" value = "sampleData">

in page 2 where you want to get the data

 add the following in ur jsp page
<%
String myVar = request.getParameter("myVar");
%>

to display the data in HTM on the page

use <%=myVar%>

Cheers!
