Stack: GeoServer, GeoExt, PostGIS, etc etc (all the standard stuff).
I have a map displayed in my browser and performing a box select adds relevant items to my selection vector layer. In addition to this a popup box appears with a summary of selected items and against each layer summary is a hyperlink which when clicked causes a server round trip (this round trip is necessary as it displays the main detail of each selected item). The server round trip results in the map being re-displayed but now my selected items are no longer selected.
My question is, can I maintain the list of selected items and keep them highlighted after the map re-draw. I could probably cobble something together using cookies but was wondering if there is an easier solution!?
