I have a session where i put name and value.
And i want to retrieve all from a new browser.
To be clearer, i open a browser and i access my servlet...i set the names and vales to put in my session that i just went to create by accessing my servlet. And i close this browser, and now i open a new browser,with this new browser when i'm accessig to my servlet i want to retrieve my last parameters(name and value).. How can i do it?
Can you post me the code ? thank you.

Sessions depend on (typically) a cookie stored on the user's browser. If your next request does not contain the cookie, you lose the session. Probably thats what is happening with your new browser.

thanks all for replying.
Then it would like to say that with a new browser i could get my attributes if i send the session id in the cookie? i don't understand. because i tried it and when i'm opening a new browser i get a new session id and while invoking my servlet i don't see my atrributes in the session that i did put atrributes with my first browser.
I'm looking for the response for this. So the server will know that it's really this user who is connecting again to the server with a new browser.
Thank for help.
