Continuation of an applet session to browser

I have an applet communicating with an application on websphere. A user logs in on the applet and a session is created. Each subsequent interaction checks for this session validity.

One of the buttons, B, on applet "open"s an HTML page which, in turn, calls a JSP on the application server. I don't know how, but proper sessionid, actually "sesessionid" is sent to the server and JSP is correctly processed and processed HTML page, let us call it P, returned.

However, here is my problem: If I close the page P and press button B again, the application server sees it as a different session and thus does not allow the user through.

Is there a way to not lose, and use, the original session no matter how many times button B is pressed and page P is closed?

Please let me know if anybody needs further clarification.
