I have an application that I have been running under Tomcat 4.0.6. In some JSPs I have regular HTML anchor tags which call servlets in another part of the application < a href="ServletName?oper=add"... In Tomcat 4.0.6 these links work fine and the session persists with these calls.
When I tried the application on a newer version of Tomcat 4.1.24 or 5.0.12 I 'lose'(for lack of a better term) the session when I use this link. I was just curious about this change, if it was a problem with 4.0.6 or the newer versions, and why.
Or, have I missed something in my web.xml or server.xml?
My context in server.xml is pretty much the default, and my web.xml is really just servlets and their mappings.
I have left the Session manager with the default settings and also tried the PersistentManager settings, to no avail.
