Hi,
I have 2 context in Tomcat say Context A and Context B. I want some session variable of A to be accessed by B. So I thought of making the context B as a child for Context A. Can some one help me how to achieve this.
Any help on this will be very much appreciated.

There is no provision in the spec or in Tomcat for nesting contexts.
If the two need to interact that closely, then they should be one context.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply. But is there any way to share information between context in tomcat 4.1.

Obviously, this doens't make for an easy distribution of your app.

If they need to share session information, why did you make them two seperate contexts?
