Hi all, Thanks for bothering to read this. I'm trying to tidy up some JSPs which had scriptlets all over them, by building the functionality into custom tags. The problem I'm seeing is that calls to request.getSession(false) return different HTTPSession objects, even though the HTTPServletRequest object is the same one (at least according to the ID tag in my debugger). Here's the relevant fragment of the JSP:
Here's the code from the <shriek:connect /> tag. It is intended to get a database connection from the ConnectionFactory & store it in the session.
This seems to work fine. The next tag, <shriek:restaurantListByLocale>, tries to use that Connection from the session. Here's the code from that tag handler:
printSessionAttributes() just dumps all of the session's attributes onto the console. What happens is that the HTTPSession object returned in the doStartTag() method is a different one to the one returned in the doInitBody() method, and so the JSPException with the message "Connection not found in session" is thrown. Can anyone shed some light on this? And perhaps recommend a good book on custom tags - all my books are very light on details. Many many thanks Dave [ April 15, 2003: Message edited by: Dave Mulligan ]
