Hi All, I want to create a List and associate with the applications memory so that it can be accessed by all the instances of the application . For example i want to maintain sessions from the server side. So when each an every new session is created i want to add that session to the list and associate some parameters with it. So that every user knows what the other user is working on. Is this possible with WebSphere App Server? If not is there any method of doing the same thing. This is actually something like a server side cookie instead of client side cookie.
And is there any way server will be able to figure out which sessions are active and which are not?
The Servlet spec expressly forbids sharing sessions between users as a security risk. However, it sounds like what you want to do could be better accomplished by using a shared database that everyone works from.
you may look at the servlet context to store and retrive this data with forming unique key. It will work only if you have a single app server. Though as Kyle said above it could lead to a possible scurity breach.
