Hi list,
We are developing a web application component that is intended to be used by other client web applications through runtime interaction - URL redirection. What are the options we have if we want to keep the client applications' HTTP sessions alive while users are redirected to our application temporarily

Is it possible to for the component application to retain the session id of the client application and hand it over upon transferring the control to the client application

Is it possible for the client application, upon taking control, to restore its http session based on the session id?

There should be something better than relying on an external database, shared files, posting requests between servlets, etc. All of these strike me as some combination of slow, fragile, or just overly complicated.

Hi Saurabh,

This can be achieved transparently (i.e. NO code change necessary) by using Coherence*Web, an HTTP Session management module built ontop of Coherence. You can share session state across applications and even across heterogeneous application servers, in a cluster.
