Servlets and the session

I have one servlet that is used for forwarding requests to other classes. Let say the main servelt gets called, it evaulates the paramaters and forwards it to the appropriate clas(eg. login class).
In the login class i get the session and save the users accesslevel into the session. Here is the code snipet:
HttpSession session = req.getSession(true);
session.putValue("access", access);
Now when the user does something(eg. clicking the list button) the servlet calls the list class, i then try and get the session with the following code, but it doesnt work.
HttpSession session = req.getSession(false);
Any ideas
I using the newest version of JRUN and everything is set up perfectly.

This is not an appropriate post for the "Cattle Drive (java college)" forum, so I've moved it to "Servlets and JSP's".
I also see that you have posted the same question in the "Developer Certification" forum. I must point out that its our policy that you post a specific question only once.
I agree. Here's the link:
