The short answer is no, not without intervention from you. You will need 
to arrange yourself for the data submitted from byproduct-input.jsp to 
be carried over so that it's available to byproduct.action.

Two ways to do that are:

1) place an action between byproduct-input.jsp and confirm.jsp which 
saves the submitted data into an object stored in the session, then 
retrieve that object in byproduct-success.action

2) place hidden fields in confirm.jsp that correspond to the inputs in 
byproduct-input.jsp, populating them from the request parameters. Make 
sure that confirm.jsp calls byproduct.action using a form submit (not 
just a link) so that the data in the hidden inputs gets sent.

You should probably be submitting byproduct-input.jsp to an action 
anyway, so that you can perform validation and/or expose any additional 
data that confirm.jsp might need but, other than that, the main thing 
affecting which approach you choose is whether you want to use or avoid 
the session.
