HTTP Sessions and Web applications...


EJB design: HTTP Sessions and Web applications...

  1. HTTP Sessions and Web applications... (2 messages)

    Hi, can anyone tell me how a HTTP Session is used/shared between different web applications in a web container and how I should use the session specific element in the web app. deployment descriptor in this case (I am using WLS5.1) I find the specs a little bit vague at this point.

    Thanks alot!!!
  2. HttpSessions are not shared between J2EE web applications but are rather bound to a specific web application.

  3. Does anyone know if the HTTP Session can be shared between different web modules (war files) which are part of the same enterprise application (ear file). The J2EE specs are not specific in this regard.

    Trying to share HTTP Session between different enterprise application is not supposed to work as specified in the Servlet specs.
