This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
How does a Container like Tomcat identify a client as being 'the same client between requests'? Is this by sessionID?
If the client keeps two browser windows open that both visit the same servlet (therefore two threads exist), how come the exact same sessionID is being exchanged (and therefore causing multithreading problems)? Why does the Container treat the client as the same regardless of browser window?

Is it also possible to steal someone's request?
