Subject Re: JSF: Multiple browser windows sharing Same session
Date Fri, 22 Aug 2008 03:29:33 GMT
You would keep state on the client by rewriting your application as a 
java application (using Java Web Start for example).  That probably 
is not acceptable to you or your management.  Thus you are left with 
session management--returning the right view based on where the user 
is in your web site.  That is what tools like Orchestra and Spring 
Web Flow provide.
