    Null session Id in New Window - need help

    samko Newbie

      To display the html report in New Window, I have set the attribute in a servlet. I am using the following command to open the New Window:


      Applet.getAppletContext().showDocument(new URL(UrlAddress), "_blank");


      In another servlet, I like to retrieve the attribute value to display it.


      HttpSession session = request.getSession(true);

      String htmlReport = (String)session.getAttribute("REPORT");


      I cannot get the attribute value since session always returns the new session id.


      Here is Context.xml:
      <!-- The contents of this file will be loaded for each web application -->
      <Context cookies="true" crossContext="true">
         <!-- Session persistence is disable by default. To enable for all web
         apps set the pathname to a non-empty value:
         <Manager pathname="SESSIONS.ser" />

         To enable session persistence for a single web app, add a
         <Manager pathname="" />

         <!-- Install an InstanceListener to handle the establishment of the run-as
         role for servlet init/destroy events.
          <SessionCookie path="/" />


      How can I retrieve the old session id?
