Im using JSP's and servlets with a mysql database to implement user login, i know how i can let a user identify oneself by just checking to see if the hashed password is the same as database along with their email. But after they login, how do the JSP's or servlets know what their userid would be after they switch to another page. Can someone help me out with this. -Thanks

Wouldn't you use cookies to store their username/userid (plus the hashed password to prevent cookie forgery)?
