Subject RE: AW: Session Lost between Tomcat and Cocoon
Date Wed, 14 Jan 2004 15:03:53 GMT
By the way, we do know that the Cocoon interaction is the issue. To get
around it temporarily we put in a hack to call a shell script that curls
the report into a .pdf file which is then loaded into the window instead
and that works.

we loose session information only because mod_proxy (to use apache at 
front), so i think that the problem is not between tomcat - cocoon but
connection with apache

i have post a similar message some time ago and the only solution was to

use cookies to store information instead of session.
