Is it possible to share sessions across servlets running in two different servlet contexts? If yes, how?

Not using the regular session mechanism. The route most people take is to persist the data which you need to share in some sort of repository reachable by servlets in both contexts (a database, JNDI repository, JavaSpace, etc.).
