Session persistence?


Hi Guruu2019s

We are currently working on a project where several Webdynpro applications have been developed.

All of the applications are related, and are implemented in the portal as iViews, on different pages.

All of the iViews has functions regarding a User.

Now we want to be able to u201Ctransferu201D the selected user from one iView to another.

That is: When a user has already been selected in one iView, and the customer needs to use the next iView, he would like to avoid searching for the same user, and instead the application should be loaded with the user used in the other iView.

This is the way the Teamviewer works, and it does it by creating a cookie in which the CKEY object is stored. But in Webdynpro we canu2019t use JavaScript, and therefore we canu2019t create a cookie. We could use persistence (eg. Rfc to r3 or to j2ee db) but I think that it would be overkill.

Is there away to create this u2013 u201Csemi persistenceu201D - functionality? We have been looking at creating a portal service which could then use a session cookie to store the information in, but we really canu2019t figure out how to make the service run in the portal, or how to consume it from the WebDynpro applications.

So please, if anyone has some experience, or some advice, help is very appreciated!

Best regards,
