dear friends,
In the index page of my web site i wish to include some logic based on the client. i. e suppose i've opened two instances of ie or any other browser. or it can be two different tab in safari or netscape. when i send request to the index.jsp page of my web application from these two different instances of the browser or two different tabs of the browser, i wish to store two different id for these two instances so that even if the session gets timmed out i can retrieved the corresponding information based on that ids. hope i'm clear to u.

how do i do that.
thanks

In Netscape, Firefox, Safari two tabs shares the same session.
In IE second window would share the same session if opened using Ctrl+N.

You can easily write the info to DB and get that whenever you want.

Where is the problem,
- in storing two different Ids?
- in storing Ids?
- in retrieving information?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
