Subject Re: Problem with jsp and session on first call
Date Thu, 14 Jan 2010 22:31:13 GMT
This way of obtaining a Session I think is not a good idiom.

May be there are things that happens behind the scene when obtaining a
session, that's probably why you are not getting a NPE the first time
you call getSession(false) in your code...because "something" already
created it.

S2 have a Map abstraction of session:
