Subject RE: Terminating sessions problem. (bug?)
Date Tue, 07 May 2002 12:39:59 GMT
But the question is, If I invalidate one session I can't use the same browser to login again,
because the session is created every time I call request.getSession(true), nevertheless if
I don't terminate the session, and the session never time out, then the server will store
large amounts of sessions that no longer will be used.

this is not a bug. All u have to do is set some attribute in session
after successfull login and then check that attribute in each servlet.
If the attribute is there in session proceed otherwise throw the login

Subject: Terminating sessions problem. (bug?)

Hello all:

    When a user enter in my site sessions are used to store user data. I
get the session using (request.getSession(true);). When users leave the
site the session is invalidated (request.getSession().invalidate();).
But, if users enter again from the same browser instance each call to
(request.getSession(true);) creates a new session so it's impossible to
get data associated with the session from differents servlets. If users
enter from another browser instance, sessions works fine.

I'm using Apache 1.3.20 + Tomcat 4.0.3 on windows NT, but this also
happened with Tomcat 3.2.1 and on unix platforms running Tomcat 3.2.1

This is a bug?, Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you very much. Regards
