I created a web application where i need to include Sessions management.

Lets consider three pages "Login.html", "" (servlet) , "HomePage.jsp";

In the login.html form i have set action as which is a servlet for validation of data from database.

And when Validation is successful then it directs to homepage.jsp . I want to know how to set Session for this application.

I have tried following steps but unable to go through.

> i have set the session in homepage.jsp as

But i get the session as null. please let me know if any thing i am missing?
