Subject Re: S2: How to tell if a response has been committed from an interceptor?
Date Wed, 06 Jan 2016 19:51:10 GMT
Well you go down the chain create the result and then back up the chain.
So when going back up the response should already be committed.


//modified code from above link to clarify
    public String intercept(ActionInvocation invocation) throws Exception {
       //do stuff before response, going down the chain
       String result = invocation.invoke();
       //do stuff after response, going back up the chain, can't do what
you seem to be trying to do here...
       return result;

That aside, "Cannot create a session" isn't a good message because you
shouldn't be trying to create a session at all! It's part of the containers
responsibility to do that. You just ask for it. So the real cause of the
issue might be something else.
