Once you put something in the session it stays there unless one of the following occurs:

1-The session times out
2-The session is invalidated with session.invalidate()
3-The attribute is removed with session.removeAttribute("myBean")

You might want to check whether there are name conflicts. One action may be inadvertently setting or clearing a session attribute using the same name as the one you're having problems with.

Since you're using Struts,
I'm going to move this thread to our Struts forum.

There may be things specific to that framework that need to be considered.
