Hide web address using JSP


I have a web application on jsp and when I navigate through it I see in the web address bar something like:


I was wondering if there was an easy way to hide this away, because everyone can see the parameters that are being passed down the address.

Thanks for your attention

A better solution may be to POST the parameters if possible, rather than use GET. If not, I believe you want the mod_rewrite module if you're using Apache.
