Can we capture clickstreams using servlets?

Alex Chaffee

To capture clickstreams generally you need a browser-side plugin like Alexa. That's *way* out of the realm of servlets.

To track click streams inside your site, check the Referer HTTP field (to see where people came from before hitting your site). Once they're in your site, you can make every servlet-generated page log its name and the username to your database. But there's no simple way to "turn clickstream recording on" or whatever.
