After investigating myself in a problem I am giving up and so I ask clever people in this forum
I have successfully installed and configured apache web server 2.x, tomcat 5.x and mod_jk (by usting xampp) to enable communication between both servers.
Everything works fine, the requests are redirected from the web server to tomcat.
Unfortunately the session object that is filled with attributes in my JSPs gets lost after each request (object = null). I think I still have a problem with my configuration - seems that apache doesn't receive or redirect the session to tomcat
Or it fails because my requests are targeted to an apache/htdocs-directory where a htaccess-file waits to redirect the request to my webapplication. I need htaccess/modrewrite for proper urls for search engines.
I do this:
localhost/mywebapp/my.jsp -> adds attribute to session object -> link on jsp references to localhost/apachedir/ -> htaccess references to localhost/mywebapp/my.jsp -> added session attribute is gone
Maybe someone has a good advice - would be great, I could not solve the problem on my own
