JSP Session Problem

Current situation:
- 1 Webserver
- Many applications (e.g. X, Y, ...)
- Many users (e.g. A, ...)

- User A log on the system using application X
- After he logged on, the session contains data regarding to which usergroups he belongs to
- User A is now changing into appplication Y
- Application Y must check, whether user A is allowed to use this application

- even both applications use following code...

<jsp:useBean id="anmeldung" scope="session" class="usermanager.beans.Login" />

application Y can not access to the session variables, that has been set by application X.

- How to solve this problem?
- How can appl. X pass over variables to application Y (regarding the same user)?

The intent of the servlet / JSP API is to keep "web applications" completely separate for security. Therefore an extra effort is required to communicate between applications - for example by means of a common database.
I agree. Here's the link:
