Subject: internet explorer nullifies session on open new window

The application we are coding requires a new window to be opened. This new
window may just contain a JavaScript calendar or a JSP page (dispatched by a

We have been using Internet Explorer 5 till recently to run the application
and this has been fine. But we recently upgraded to I.E. 5.5 and 6.0. In
both of the new versions, when a new window is opened and then closed, the
session in the original window gets nullified.

For example, there are places where I need to see a calendar, so I open this
calendar in a new window, I use the calendar, then I close the calendar
window. I then press a button (in the main window) to go to another page in
my application, where all the session values are now displayed as null.
Subsequent system error statements show that the session is indeed null.

I am not sure this is a tomcat problem or a IE problem (probably a IE
problem), but was wondering if anybody has experienced anything similar and
if they have solved the problem...

Note: I am using tomcat 4.01

Thanks much in advance,
