      <s1 title="A different approach">
  	<p>With continuations in the language, you can essentially
  	store the continuation of <code>sendPage</code> (think of all
  	the stack trace, and the program counter), put it in a global
  	hash table associated with an id. The id is then encoded in
  	the <code>response.xml</code> page as an URL. When the user
  	clicks on that URL, on the server side the associated
  	continuation is resumed. Resuming the processing happens as if
  	nothing was stopped, you get all the stack trace back, and all
  	the local variables.</p>
  	<p>So instead of using beans to store things in session, you
  	use normal variables in a program. Since each user has its own
  	version of the program, all the local variables in the program
  	are separate between users.</p>
  	<p>With this approach clicking the <em>Back</em> button in the
  	browser is no longer a hassle to deal with for you as a
  	server-side programmer. They will simply refer to past
  	continuations objects, which have their own state of the local
  	<p>Since continuations are objects, you can also store them in
  	a database, for really long-lived session, just like you do
  	with session beans.</p>
