did the context got into ThreadLocal in the first place? If it comes from the session, multiple

calls on the pages).

I use the CayenneFilter in my web.xml. Once a request comes in, it
looks like it is the SessionContextRequestHandler who creates my
context and binds it to the current thread.

Basically it is three steps: register, activate and then login what
user does. It fails when the user does his login (sometimes). At this
point there is no ajax at all, just plain stuff.

Yes, exactly.

My "design" is: User <-> UserRoles <-> Roles

I have a fixed role  like "user" or "admin" in the roles table. I want
to select the existing user role from the table (I do it by the name,
which is some kind of key for me) and add it to a user with creating a
new UserRoles object.

This is actually were is it seems to fail. In my database all three
entities are existing and look good. But if a make up a new request
and select the User, it claims it has no roles which leads to a

My guts say it might also be somehow caching related. When I login i
create a simple SelectQuery which selects the User.class by login
name. Might it be a good idea to make something like this?

SelectQuery query = ...

It would give me a very bad taste in my mouth if I would need that.
