Hi All!
I'm having a bit of a problem with the auto-login feature I'm trying to implement for my site.
The idea was to set a cookie with his UserID on the user's machine. When he returns to my site and a session is created, I'd like to look up his details from the DB in the sessionCreated() method of a HttpSessionListener and store them on the session.
The problem is, I can't access the request/cookie object from the HttpSessionEvent that's passed into this method. Is there any way to get to this info?
Hope you can help!
