Tracking Sessions in WebAS

Hi everyone,

We are using server side cookies for passing data from one page to another. We are running into issues when one user can create a server side cookie and does Ctrl N in IE browser(start a new Window). We now have the earlier session passed on to this new window. At this point he can change the server side cookie data. This would overwrite his previous Server Side Session Cookie data.

Is there a way we can uniquley indentify a Session Cookie otherthan using the SessionIDUserNameApp Name as the key. We want to keep the session side cookie data consistent to every browser window which logically relates to the Application, he is working on.

Can someone shed some light on this issue?

Thanks

A

    Hi,

    this is a general problem you are facing, as per definition a new window is another session.

    The best way is to catch attempts of doing a control-N, which also does Web Dynpro, SAP's web application front end.

    Because whatever you do, once your application data is in two windows you are in trouble for consistency.

    Regards,

    Benny
