Hi all,

Here's my problem. I have two web applications. Let's name them APP1 and APP2. APP2 makes use of spring. In one of its functions, APP1 passes data to APP2. It does this by calling an APP2 controller on one of its pages

<form action="" >

<textarea name="passedInfo" class="hiddenClass"> encryptedinformation </textarea>


When this form from APP1 is submittted, it then forwards to the login page of APP2 and after a successful login, the details passed from APP1 is displayed by APP2 in the next page.

When we do a view source of the login page of APP2, we can see that the encrypted info passed by APP1 is received. It is received by passPaymentInformationController then displayed as a hidden field in the login page. The problem is when I login into the page, session timeout happens. When I login I just go back to the login page even if the user and password is correct. I check the logs and it said session timeout. This only happens using IE6. Does spring have something to do with this problem?

I used Spring MVC for APP2.


form of APP1 >> SUBMIT >> calls passPaymentInfo action of APP2 >> forwards to login page of APP2 >> user logins >> if successful APP2 displays info from APP1

I would appreciate any form of help. Thanks.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
