    wsrp session propagation problem

    karin k Newbie

      Hi,
      using SAP Portal as consumer and JBoss Portal (JBoss 4.0.5GA + JBossPortal 2.6 DR1) as consumer.
      I recognized that for each remote invocation a new session is created
      on JBoss side.

      SAP stated that this depends on the answer from JBoss during
      the getServiceDescription method, where JBoss Portal (producers) says,
      that the consumer does not need to handle sent cookies from the producer.

      Here the answer from SAP:

      - JBoss answered that it requires NO cookies initialization
      (see <ns1:requiresInitCookie>none
      </ns1:requiresInitCookie>)
      - SAP does not call initCookie
      - no producer cookies are stored on the consumer
      - each consumer request is being sent without JSESSIONID and is being handled
      by a NEW session on the producer side (no session held state is used across requests).


      Here the request/response for getServiceDescription
      1. Request from SAP EP (consumer) to JBoss (Producer)

          We interpreted the WSRP specification as: Consumers are supposed to return ANY cookies that the producer sends REGARDLESS of whether the producer requires a call to initCookie.
          It turns out that BEA's consumer version 9.1 and earlier behaves similarly as you not SAP's consumer does.
          Since our producer relies on cookies to handle sessions, we are now requesting initCookie to be called to work around consumers that don't send the cookies we send them back. The fix is already in subversion and will be available in the upcoming version 2.4.2 and 2.6.BETA1.
