Subject tomcat 3.3.1 losing session after a redirect:
Date Wed, 12 Jun 2002 04:25:17 GMT
Hi guys
I have the following problem:

2 servlets communicating via:
  HttpSession session = req.getSession(true);
      Log.debug("Payment.doGet() - session="+session);
      // add the transaction id to the session
      session.setAttribute(PARAMETER_TRANSACTION_ID, transactionId);
      // redirect to the receipt page
      Log.debug("Payment.doGet() - receiptUrl="+receiptURL);

where the doGet of the receipt uRL servlet does:
    // get the session associated with the request
    HttpSession session = req.getSession(false);

    Log.debug("Receipt.doGet() - session="+session);

Sometimes, the session is not defined anymore

 (not all the times: I can never reproduce the problem myself but the live systems fails 50%
of the time)
Any idea, is this a known bug?
I doubt it is a timeout but  what is the default timeout session on tomcat?
Any help very welcome
