Watch Question

You need to store this data in a HttpSession. Remember how to get the session:

HttpSession session = request.getSession();

then  you add your attributes, in this case your query objects, they can be stored in a String or in another object.

session.setAttribute("name", "value");

remember setAttribute receives a String name and an object for the value.

when you want to display again your querys, just get the attribute from the session object:

String q = (String)session.getAttribute("name");

Good luck
