Default Is it possible to set $_Session Variables in java

I would like to know if it is possible to save a value from a php form in a session using a java function.

What I am doing:

I have a php form. The form contains a textbox and 2 list menus (drop down box) The second drop down box relies on the selection made in the first.

within the reload() java function I save the value entered in the first list menu (using the onChange="reload(this.form)" ) I pass the variables in the url. The users selection loads values into the second list menu. Where the user can make a second selection. This value is passed using the same method.

What I would like to do is save the textbox (or all the entered values) values in a session using a java function. When the user changes the a value or enters one.

Look at the javax.servlet.http.HttpSession object. You can get one by calling HttpServletRequest.getSession(). Then call HttpSession.setAttribute(String, Object) to set a session variable, and HttpSession.getAttribute(String) to retrieve one.
