Re-display JSP page with form

Hi Guys,
I am designing a Accommodation web page(.jsp page) which contains an availability enquiry form which a user can use to enquire if the accommodation is available for a period or not.

<form name="CheckAvail" ACTION='insert_enquiry.jsp' METHOD="POST">

The action of this form is another jsp page which inserts the enquiry into a database and also checks if the period is already booked.
I have all the logic for checking if already booked working.

I am now wondering if there is a way that I can redisplay the CheckAvail form with users previously entered data so as they can change their period of enquiry if they wish??

In Accommodation.jsp  you could use something like this.
  String checkAvailability = (String)session.getAttribute("checkAvailability");
  if(checkAvailability == null) checkAvailability = "";
and in form  
<input type="text" name="checkAvailability" value="<%=checkAvailability%>"/>
and in insert_enquiry.jsp  you could use  
   String checkAvailability = request.getParameter("checkAvailability");
   if(checkAvailability == null) checkAvailability = "";
   session.setAttribute("checkAvailability" , checkAvailability);
