I have an applet opening a connection to a servlet, sending it a Table object. The servlet gets the
HttpSession object to allow the Table data to be stored for the appropriate client. This arrangement
has worked for a long time. I assumed that the: new URL(applet.getCodeBase(), servlet_path).open.Connection
was providing the HttpSession object.
Recently, request.getSession(false) is returning null. However, the applet is still sending valid Table data.
My question is am I making the correct assumption as to how the applet provides the servlet with the session object?
