I think the standard way would be to use a a session bean,
if the communication is limited to a session, or an 
application bean if not. This is sort of shared memory, but
beware of concurrent access and synchronise. Both ways work 
only if the servlets are in the same webapp. I would refrain 
from using files in any case.

If the servlets are not in the same webapp, then IMHO
the only clean way is HTTP.
