Session Re-generation

We have one requirement related to session re-generation. We want to re-generate session before redirecting/forwarding a logged in user to next page.

We have implemented a code to copy all the session attribute in a Hash Map, then we have invalidated the current session.

Subsequently, we created new session and moved all the Hash Map entries to new session as attributes.

We have verified that all the attributes are available in new session and can be accessed properly.

However, the user is redirected to login page instead of moving him to the desired page.

Any help for this is appreciated.

We have no way of knowing why your application is redirecting to the wrong place--perhaps some code and/or configuration would help.
I agree. Here's the link:
