Im not certain, but I think there can be only one session. The session is usually created by calling getSession() method of HttpServletRequest class. There is an API for servlets somewhere at the sun site but im not sure of the exact url. http://java.sun.com/
Just use the one session but apply some imagination to the way you manipulate the objects stored in the session. A session is basically a Hashtable after all - you can create the name of the attribute to reflect the circumstances under which you want to retrieve it. Everybody working with servlets or JSP should have a copy of the API documents, you can download them from java.sun.com. Bill
