Hi

Is there anyway i can get the servletcontext of a web app in a server not the same as the one in which the current app is hosted?

For Ex,

WEBAPP A is in WEBSERVER B, and WEBAPP C is in WEBSERVER D.

I need to get the context of WEBAPP C in WEBAPP A.

getServlet().getServletContext().getContext("WEBAPP C") would have got it if WEBAPP C was in server B.

Is there anyway i can set the server to look in first and then get the context after that?

TIA
Sai

There is an application on Server1 and another application on Server2. The application starts off from Server1 and in the interim, i need to process some info in Server2 and then back. To process this info, i need the request object from Server1's application.
These 2 apps being on different servers, how do i maintain a session between them?

Passing the required data to server2 through query parameters is not an option since there are too many of them.

I am in the process of trying the HttpProxyServlet (weblogic) but i am not sure if RequestDispatcher can forward requests to app in other servers.

I read something about Coherence in this forum, not sure if that worked for someone?

Thanks
Sai

Hi ,

Basically for this requirement you need to consider using HttpClient for achiving this .This is a sample program , here as you can see i am passing Object to different server .
