Authirization Filter Problem

I have a problem with filter that is

A single HTTP session is used for browsers that support multiple tabs firefox. This causes a problem when different views of a single JSF application are accessed from different browser tabs. In short this is causing or seems to be causing problems for me. How can I write a JSF application to be �tab� independent?

I thought about using a tab or �browser instance� hidden field within each form. Each time a request was received a filter would check for the special hidden field. If present, the hidden field would be used together with the session id to form a unique composite key used to access the session data. If not present a new value would be created to store the session data. I think that there are many other problems (redirect, links, etc) that I would have to also deal with� It also seems like a recipe for disaster.

I would like to hear how others have solved this problem... That is, multiple browser instances (via tabs) that share the same session id and access the same JSF application.

Thanks in advance

I've tried using AJAX with JSF, and also with JSF 1.0 since I'm stuck with it .. its standard where i'm working

I've ended up adding a filter to synchronize session requests, as concurrent 'ajax' requests (or any concurrent http requests) caused problems with the jsf implemenation updating the component tree

hope that helps

What kinds of problems is it causing? Offhand, I'd say that a well-written web app should have no problems serving several different pages to the same user. Is this something like a wizard, where several subsequent pages depend on one another?

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
