Hello all,
I need to know the difference between following statements

HttpSession session = (HttpSession) FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getExternalContext().getSession(true);
and
HttpSession session = (HttpSession) FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getExternalContext().getSession(false);

same as the HttpRequest.getSession(boolean) methods. It's the same as getSession(), except when false is passed as a parameter, the container will not create a new session if there is no session, and will instead return null. getSession(true) is identical to getSession().
