Hi guys,

First, thanks a bunch for this opensource forum software. This is my third day after downloading JForum and very close to getting it integrated into my webapp. I have an issue which is not JForum related but I am having trouble passing the email and password in session for UserCookieSSO. I have deployed JForum in a separate context from my webapp. When I redirect the request back to JForum after successful authentication, the SSO only picks up the username from cookie. It fails to read the email and password attribute. On further investigation I found that the session ids for the user are different when I authenticate the user in my webapp and when I access the sesion from SSO implementation. I am using tomcat 5.5.

Did anyone else see this problem? Any thoughts on how I can get around this?

Thanks.

I also tried enabling crossContext=true in my webapplication context and jforum context. I can still see two JSession cookies set in my browser by tomcat. One for path / and another for /jforum. Is there any way I can configure both apps to use one JSession cookie? I will also check tomcat mailing list and update if I find anything.

Thanks.

I ended up loading user data from my database inside UserCookieSSO authenticate method. I extract email and password and set it in session context. It worked. Now I see users automatically created in JForum with correct email and password.
