Hi,

I have a program in which I need to remember the session Id for the requests that pass through the same SOAP Handler. If I use static variable it gets altered to the the last modification. So I decided on cookies.

But if I add a cookie to the response message to the servlet I am not getting the cookie in the following reuest message.

Can anyone suggest me an idea?

You should not be using either cookies or HTTP sessions with web services. Return a token ID as part of the response; then the client can send that along with the next request.

Actually I cannot make any changes in the client part as it belongs to someone else. I need to create the handler with a point that I dont know any details in the web application.

I cant use a static variable as for multiple instances it takes the last value. So am thinking of some way.

I also need to know how to display an error web page directly from the SOAPHandler???

Hi!
Note that JAX-WS web service clients must be configured to maintain session information (such as cookies), using the javax.xml.ws.session.maintain property.
Other web service stacks may have similar mechanisms.
Best wishes!
