Subject Re: cocoon-session management.

Hi Hussayn:

I agree with you. In that case you lost the session tracking. Apparently
Cocoon manages his own sessions.

I think we need to make Cocoon to work with the Tomcat Sessions or (to be
more general) with the Servlet Container Session Management. In that way
all will be OK accross multiple web applications.

Yesterday I was reading about the new persistent session management in
Tomcat 4.1.x. I think we can make use of it. But, since Cocoon works with
the Java Servlet Specification 2.2 and not 2.3, this can be an issue to
resolve. I feel like you in that the session management is weak at the
current development of Cocoon. We need some improvement here to help
webapplication development. The best approach is try to be the most
closest to the specification 2.3.

At the end, for session management in only one application, the current
authentication framework is OK.

Sorry for the incoveniences. :-D

Antonio Gallardo.
