How to implement remembering a task/step in a web application?

Dear Experts,

Please read this scenario, I have 4 tasks/steps in my web application, suppose user completed till 2nd task, and he sign out from the application, or server is re-started, now the same user logged in to the application, now we have to shown him where he is, that means , what steps/tasks he is completed, what are the steps needs to be completed, we have to shown him clearly.

Please provide any the solution for this.

FYI, i am using JSF framework.

whether if you logout time also the task want to run ???

then with background process(batch program this will not depends on your application ) ... and update the DB ..... then when ever user enter the web page then what are all the task pending ...


If No then ....

create 2 tables  one is task status and other one is task to perform

you will fetch the task user and status  open .
if task compleate then set status as closed .


then it will show only open status ...
