Hi all I have just loaded my application onto a new server, and almost everything is working properly, except...
when called with a relative path name is changing the name of the server, which means the session cookie gets lost. The server name it is changed to is an alias defined in the <host> section of the server and is also what request.getServerName() returns. Has anyone seen anything like this before ? Cheers Steve

Once again I've sorted things out myself before anyone bothered responding. I'm starting to wonder whether there is actually any point in using this forum.
The problem was that the new server was running under Apache with mod_jk, and the Apache config was specifying the wrong name.
You asked if anybody had seen that before - given that the solution was really pretty obscure, and that your first and second posts were separated by less than a day, you really should not be surprised.
anyone bothered responding
indeed! Did you really think that there were people reading that post who knew the answer but didn't respond out of spite? Bill
