Subject Strange behaviour with url rewrite when cookies are allowed
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2005 10:19:02 GMT
Hi List,

I have a legacy webapp that I am slowly migrating to Struts. It makes 
heavy use of storing / retrieving objects in the session and does not 
rewrite all URL (yet) to allow for session handling when cookies are 
turned off. The app runs fine on my dev machine (TC 5.0.28 with SDK 
1.4.2_09 on Win XP Pro) but when deployed to the server (TC 5.0.28 with 
SDK 1.4.2_08 on Linux) it does not. Runs fine meaning that it has no 
problems accessing anything stored in the session because cookies are used 
for session handling. When accessed on the server however, sessions are 
not handled via cookies and as the rewriting is only in part working the 
app fails to access objects stored in the session. Other apps running on 
the same server have no problem using cookies (and my browser does accept 
cookies :).

I am clueless as to why / how this happens, any suggestions are very
