Subject Re: single sign-on for Tomcat+Axis?
Date Fri, 06 Aug 2004 22:23:27 GMT
I'm a little late to this one but... I've always used a singleton hashmap on
the serverside to store the session ID objects then, extract that from the
soap header in order to re-connect to the previous session. I'm sure there
are better, more elegant ways to do this and, if anyone knows them, I would
love to hear about it.
