I have the following code in my login.jsp:
session.setAttribute("myAttribute", "false");
When I login for the first time, this works fine BUT when the user selects to logout of the app, then log back in (clicking a link to go back to login screen) the session attribute "myAttribute" is null (once the user has logged back in. ??? This makes no sense b/c I'm hardcoding the attribute in the login.jsp. When he/she logs in, this attribute should be there right!?
The logout action has the following code:
HttpSession session = request.getSession(false);
if (session != null) {
session.invalidate();
}
I don't understand what happens to the attribute?
Also interesting - this works just fine on Tomcat - it's only iPlanet that is giving me the problem.
