Session variable question

Hi all,

Im trying to amend a variable that is stored in a session. My current method is get the session variable in a string, add my new value to the string and overwrite the session variable with this new string. This is seems a overkill.
Is there a better method?

My current approach:

String var = getSessionVar();
session.removeAttribute("currentSession");
String newVar = " - "+val;
session.setAttribute("currentSession", newVar);

Thanks.

no need to remove the attribute.
session.setAttribute replaces if one already exists.
