I am trying to access one of my applications in websphere server. But I am facing one strange problem here.
Though I open two different instances of browser(not by Ctrl+N or popup) both are using same session.
When I print jsessionid cookie and session id values, both browser instances print different jsessionid cookie values
but with same session id. How can this scenario be possible? With this scenarios, my session values aree getting messed up
from both browsers.
Here i am displaying session id and jsession cookie values from both browsers.

From browser 1:
jsessionid cookie value = 0000APUj7MW7vLTX3SMMeXZgwrf:11c2ij3kd
session.getID() = FYf00DbhZASZXhr4HLSO40K

From browser 2:

jsessionid cookie value = 0000FYf00DbhZASZXhr4HLSO40K:11c2ij3kd
session.getID() = FYf00DbhZASZXhr4HLSO40K
