Subject Vexing session creation issue
Date Wed, 16 Jun 2004 14:35:43 GMT
I sent this to the Struts mailing list as well, but it seems like it could 
be a Tomcat issue as well (probably just some config option I don't know 

Argh, this one is hurting my head...

I have an application that starts out by returning index.jsp (it's the 
welcome file).  This JSP opens a new window via JavaScript and loads into it 
index1.jsp.  index1.jsp populates five frames of a frameset.  At the end of 
all this, my logon screen is seen.

The important thing to note here is that no Actions are executed to this 
point, it's just loading JSP's, and there is not really any JSP code in any 
of these except for a bunch of request.getContextPath() calls.  No code 
accesses session or anything like that, and there are only two references to 
getting anything out of request (because the logon page might be shown after 
a bad attempt, and I need to get the userID and password that was 
attempted).  In all of them, I have session="false" in the page tag.

Now... I've created a SessionListener to tell me when a session is created 
or destroyed.  Problem is, during all these JSP loads, the create event 
fires TWICE!  What's worse, session is NOT null (which I expected it to be), 
and worse still, I'm getting two DIFFERENT session ID's!  It looks like two 
sessions are being created when it seems like absolutely NONE should be.

I'm banging my head against the wall with this one.  Anyone have any ideas?  
Thanks folks!
