Subject How to maintain session attributes in a frameset?
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2003 15:44:19 GMT

I'm using the following configuration:

- Tomcat 4.1.12
- Struts 1.1b3
- JSTL 1.0
- a frameset containing two frames (all JSP)

The JSP containing the frameset sets session attributes using the
<c:set> tag from JSTL. The frameset is built by using the Struts tag
<html:frame ...> (relative URLs to frame in the same web-app).

The session attributes which are set in the frameset-page cannot be
retrieved in the frames because the frames could not be assigned to
the session that was created by the frameset.

This behaviour occured in all tested browsers (IE 6, Mozilla 4+7, Opera 
7). When using Mozilla 7, I deleted the session cookie JSESSIONID. 
Afterwards, the application worked as intended. However Mozilla did not
create any new session cookie.

Using URL-rewriting in the frameset showed no effect.

Is this a known problem and is there any work-around?

Thanks in advance,

Johann Uhrmann
