I am using the database framework Cayenne. Like most web based 
client/server frameworks, it requires that you pass it an HttpSession 
to retrieve a context for that HttpSession.

As there is no option here, I must supply the HttpSession, the question 
is - does cocoon provide access to it?

I guess I could re-create a standard HttpSession from the cocoon 
HttpSession, but usually when I'm backed into such an ugly hack, it's 
because I haven't found the "proper" way. I'm assuming that cocoon 
would not completely obscure the standard HttpSession - even if it's 
wrapped it. Does anyone know the real story?

Thanks again for your time,
