Stateful web services

I am trying to implement a stateful Jaxrpc web service application, I have my main class implementing
ServiceLifecycle and added two methods

public void init(Object context) throws ServiceException {
if (jaxrpcContext == null) {
jaxrpcContext = (ServletEndpointContext) context;


public void destroy() {
jaxrpcContext = null;

I have written the code to obtain the Session
HttpSession hp=jaxrpcContext.getHttpSession();
but it seems method call by the client results in a new Session everytime. Any suggestions to this

I have always steered clear of stateful WS, but I would guess that you need to send the session ID back to the client, and that the client needs to send it back to the server with the next request. Or is that done automatically? Your experience suggests that it may not.
