Subject RE: Session sharing between two URLs
Date Tue, 22 Jul 2008 19:57:09 GMT
Thank you Chuck! I'm using Tomcat 5.5.25, and we are using our own 
authentication system so Single Sign On Vale cannot be used. I set 
emptySessionPath="true" to make the path on the jsessionid cookie less 

I'm using both URLs and to access the same 
webapp, these two DNS entries point to the same Tomcat instance. The 
application automatically switches user locale based on the language 
switch, and hence changing the URL displayed. JSESSIONID is used to track 
user information and is appended as a URL parameter. I simply want a way 
to be able to switch between English and French URLs with the same 
jsessionid. I don't know if this is possible without changing the Tomcat 
source code?

Are you sure both URLs access the same webapp?  Or do you really have the 
webapp deployed twice, once for each language?  If the latter, the 
SingleSignOn valve may help:

Next time, tell us the Tomcat version you're using.
