In a java struts web app, if I am browsing a site and then I open another IE 8 window* and go to the same site, is there a way to detect that the new request has come from another window from the same machine.

Basically my requirement is to alert the user that they cannot open another window with the same site.

*In IE 8 all windows share the same session. Hence request.getsession() would always return the same ID across all the windows.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
