Below is the scenario..

First Page Second Page

Radio button 1
Radio button 2

Submit.
I select the first Radio Button and submit and then i go to second page where i have some content. Now when i go back to first page the same radio button which i had selected must be viewed. Need help to view the selected radio button when i navigate to the first page.

Following is the code..
getName.jsp

UserData.java

package User;
public class UserData  {
String username;
 private String notify;
 
    public void setUsername( String value )
    {
        username = value;
    }
 
  
    public String getUsername() { return username; }
 
   
    public String getNotify() {
        return notify;
    }
 
    
    public void setNotify(String notify) {
        this.notify = notify;
    }
 
}

Please help..

nipa.pilla,

I think following block has no importance.

<%
   String name = request.getParameter( "username" );
   session.setAttribute( "theName", name );
%>

In SaveName.jsp -a UserData bean is already been added into the session scope.

You may write "checked" attribute for radio buttons based upon the value of notify.

      User.UserData usr=(User.UserData)session.getAttribute("user");
      String rad1="";
      String rad2="";         
      if(usr!=null)  
        {
          if(usr.getNotify().equals("Yes"))
             rad1="checked='checked'";
           else
             rad2="checked='checked'";
         }
