Hi All
I have 2 applications running on tomcat on different contexts.
i have a link in context 'A' which calls a jsp page in context 'B'.

I am trying to access certain session variables of context 'A' in this context 'B's jsp.
It is returning null.

Can anybody explain if i can access variables like this.

Thanks

You can not (easily anyway).
Sessions are not meant to be shared across contexts.

I heard some application servers provide this feature but it would be application server specific then. Nothing for sure.
