Issue with IE7 and IE8 (possibily due to cookies)

Hi, I am facing an issue with IE7 and IE8. The web appliction I am developing on is deployed on Weblogic 10.3. It uses wicket 4.18. Now on IE7/8, when I open the browser and login on domain (e.g. mapped to I am able to successfully reach to the home page. Now if I open up another tab in same IE window and try to login to subdomain (e.g. mapped to I am pushed back to the login page. There is only occurring in IE 7 and 8 and working fine in firefox and chrome.

Now in the weblogic.xml I have this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE weblogic-web-app PUBLIC "-//BEA Systems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 9.1.0//EN" "">
<!-- WebLogic session descriptors -->

If I open the subdomain ( in a new IE window with domain already open in another IE window, this issue does not occur and I am able to login through subdomain.

This seems to be an issue due to browser session cookie. If while login, for all the cookies whose name contains "ookie", I set - setMaxAge(0), setPath("/"), doamin this issue seems to resolved on local machine, but it happens on real deployment environment. Not sure if this sii\ the right approach to this issue.

Please share how can this issue be resolved.

Thanks in advance
