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!
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
