Hi all

I am facing a weird scenario where two new browser instances are using the same session . I am using tomcat as my webserver and the browsers are opened(with out using Ctrl-N ...) , but strangely two browsers are having the same session .. I confirmed this by printing session.getId() in the action class(servlet) and they are the same ...

What might have gone wrong ??? This is happening recently in my site (Past 1-2 yrs i never encountered this...)

I believe that's the expected behavior if you open the browser by using file->new or CNTRL-N

I think you are confused. The behaviour is fine if the browser is opened using File..New or Ctrl-N as both of them share the same session

I am opening two new instances using Iexplorer.exe and i am not able to understand how they are sharing the same session ...

Something somewhere is wrong ..if any one has a clue abt this i would be thankful

I would suggest you to update your IE.

Are you absolutely certain you are clicking on the explorer shortcut.
Its not a shortcut to an internet website? (which often uses the open windows)
Check task manager to see how many copies of IE you actually have running.
What version are you using?
