Hi Experts,

What I need is to find out if the JSP page opened first time within session or may be there is another way but without using URL string.

Thank you.

Hi,

there are of course many ways you can do this.

Here is one way:

When your action-class has determined that the user has opened the page, you set a parameter:

HttpSession session=request.getSession();
session.setAttribute("didUserOpenPage1", "yes");

In the jsp:

<%
HttpSession session=request.getSession();
String didUserOpenPage1=session.getAttribute("didUserOpenPage1");
if(didUserOpenPage1.equals("yes"){
  System.out.println("OH NO! HE HAS OPENED THIS PAGE BEFORE!!!!!");

}
// here you know its the 1. time
%>
