How can I ensure that when a user opens up a new browser window, my servlet will create a new corresponding HttpSession.
Thanks in advance.

"roy rogers"- two things...
1st thing:
Welcome to the JavaRanch! We like to keeep a nice professional image here at the JavaRanch (despite the big one-eyed moose). Please adjust your displayed name to match the JavaRanch Naming Policy.
You can change it here.
2nd thing:
just to expand on Chris' reply -- it all depends on the browser and HOW the user creates this new window. If you open multiple Internet Explorer windows by double clicking on the IE icon -- each window will have a different Session ID. However if you use Ctrl+N to open a new window -- the two will have the same Session ID. No matter how you open a new Netscape window -- the windows will share a Session ID.
It's a browser issue, you have no control over it.
Hope that helps... Thanks in advance for fixing your displayed name and again welcome to the JavaRanch!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
