Hi,
i've a web app (tomcat6 and struts-->we're updating to JSF2+Primefaces)
that manage a single store.
I've to move it to a more complex system to manage multistore.
I'm finding the best solution from server side to help this.
i.e. Is it possible to manage every different store with a "symbolic" subfolder:
es. www.mydomain.com\store1
www.mydomain.com\store2
etc..

for symbolic i intend the store1 and store2 are not a physical folder but only represent a paramter that configure the User SESSION to the "StoreX".
Another classic way could be passing a GET parameter (www.mydomain.com?store=1) but i don't think it's a great idea.

Any suggest?
How con servlet can help me?

thanks in advance

Not a servlet, exactly. A filter would be more suitable, since it could identify the "store number" and set up the session the way you want.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.

It's not a secret anymore!
