    Authenticating Webservice as Web Session

    Ray Tomlinson Newbie

      I want to launch a client app from a web page such that it will access web services with the same authentication as existed for the web page. In JBoss 3.2.3, I could do this by passing the session id to the app so it could add the jsessionid cookie to the http headers.

      This technique doesn't seem to work (or I don't know how to configure my application so it does work). Is this approach possible? If so, how? If not, is there a reasonable alternative?

      The goal is be able to seamlessly invoke applications that use access-controlled web services on the client from a servlet created web page of a logged-in user.
