I am using Servlet filter to secure help documents in the site.
If the session is expired or user enters the document URL directly into browser, it redirects user to log in page.
Filter Servlet : DocumentAuthenticationFilter
This works great in all browsers. If session is expired user is redirected to log in page else document is opened in the new window of browser.
But in IE 8 the session is not found in the newly opened browser window and the filter redirects the user to log in page, as well as session in the parent page is also lost after that.
Has anyone come across this? Any suggestions?
