Hi all,
This is most likely a common problem, but many a day has been spent working on it prior to this post.
I'm attempting to check for the existance of a "user" object in a session. If it exists then I want to parse the provided "run" parameter for method names and invoke them. If the "user" object does not exist than I want to direct the person to the login screen.
The login method will create the user based on a successful login attempt.

My problem is that by attempting to check if I always end up with it equaling null and so I always hit the login function.
-Chris

Hi,
Have you bind the instance of class User if the login process is successful ?

Shankar - I'm setting the user object in the login method (see below)
Benny - Sorry I'm pretty new to the Java world so I'm not sure about what you're talking about.
