hi rammie,

Can you specify what is the need of doing so.

by calling methods request.getSession() or request.getSession(true);

in both cases it will return a existing session Object but if there is no existing session it will create new one for you.

if you calls request.getSession(false), it will return session object if there is already created session but it will return null if no existing session is there

in any case ony one session will be maintained not two.....

Why do you believe you want to create two sessions? There's only one session associated with a request.
I agree. Here's the link:
