Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows what HttpSessionContext is? What does it do? Also, the IDs within such HttpSessionContext, what do they identify? What do they mean?
Thanks!

The original idea was that a HttpSessionContext would let you get at all sessions in an application. The ids would be the unique session ids.
Sun decided this represented a security risk and deprecated the whole class as of servlet API 2.1 (the previous API)
