Hello all, Is it possible to have servlet chaining across applications, i.e. servlet chaining across EAR's. To further explain my question, I am trying to pass an object from a servlet in one application to a servlet in another application(possibly in a different JVM).
I am quite eager to know how to do this in distributed model....any ideas?

Colin, Let's say there are 2 applications, A and B. My autheticaion module, upon successful authetication, calls a servlet which is in application A. Now, application A contains the authentication "object". Application A also contains a link to application B and the only way Application B can be accessed is from Application A. So I need a way to pass the authetication object to application B if the user clicks on the link. This is not exactly what I am trying to do but essentially is the same. There are ways of getting around the problem but for efficiency reasons, I am looking for a way to pass the authetication object to application B without having application B to go and authenticate again. Thanks for the help Adnan
