Hi,

It is mentioned in HFSJ that even if an user opens multiple browser windows , they all share the same Session Object.

This works properly for FireFox ( I donno whether IE Older versions do the same)

Observation: FIREFOX
INFO: Server startup in 1078 ms
WINDOW 1
SESSION: New Session initiated, created at 1176895778968
(Refresh in same window)
SESSION: Old Session continued, created at1176895778968
SESSION: Cookie from browser is SESSIONID=3C91D4D3C52FDFC523464A60CF518352

WINDOW 2
SESSION: Old Session continued, created at1176895778968
SESSION: Cookie from browser is JSESSIONID=3C91D4D3C52FDFC523464A60CF518352


But in IE7 a new Session Object is created for every window.

Observation: IE7

INFO: Server startup in 1266 ms
SESSION: New Session initiated, created at1176889730984
(Refresh in same window)
SESSION: Old Session continued, created at1176889730984
SESSION: Cookie from browser is JSESSIONID=B80893D3E437E07117E3C6CBED44EFC0

New Window opened

SESSION: New Session initiated, created at1176889771375
(Refresh in same window)
SESSION: Old Session continued, created at1176889771375
SESSION: Cookie from browser is JSESSIONID=4AD268C2B910C72F5DBAFE34808E1B73

Yes this is a fact, Firefox share the session, IE dont'.

So if your application needs to run in every browser you might want to use the request scope in some of your servlets/jsp

IE can have multiple windows share the same session, but the additional windows MUST be spawned from a window that is already participating in a session. By spawned, I mean the orginating window can create the other window or the user can press Ctrl+N to create a duplicate of the originating window.

Vijay, we don't have many rules around here but we do have a Naming Policy. Please review our policy and update your display name accordingly. Specifically, the name "Vijay" is only a first name and the policy requires both a first and last name. Thanks.

This approach will not solve the problem: sharing information between multiple request of the same user.

I have a question for you people,

If I have a page with 2 links, and this links opens 2 new window,

how can I do that this 2 window have differents sessions between them? A map:


Example: The parent window open a child window with the session ID: 111222, then the parent window opens another child window and this still have the session ID:111222.

I try this in ie and firefox.

Thank you.
