Subject Re: forwarding to a remote host
Date Tue, 11 Jul 2006 12:01:33 GMT
Yeah, that is a good point. The third option - cross context disabled or
remote host - will not keep session data, unless you one of three things:
- the request is stateless (where it doesn't matter anyways)
- you forward everything to the remote host, including the cookies and
all; this seems complex to get right
- you maintain a new session with state locally

I was working under the assumption that a lone request to a remote host
is fully stateless. Not necessarily a fair assumption, I guess.
