      Guys like this rarely understand what they mean.

        There's a lot of options for this:
        If you were in Mashup Center 3.0, you could use the new User Context settings to store the value in a widget's managed item set specific to the current user
        You could store the value on a DOM Object using the ECMAScript DOM API. Something like window.MyValueCache.ValueName = 'Value' and retrieve it later
        You could store the value in a Cookie using the ECMAScript Cookie API.
        You could use Mashup Hub to store & retrieve the value in a database using the user id (gotten from the iWidget iContext API) as a key value.
        You could create a Web API that stores & retrieves your value (in a DB or perhaps in the JEE Web Session scope) and call the API from ECMAScript.
        I've ordered this list from what i'd consider easiest to hardest to implement.
