Attributes in Session


I need help for an EP-Application which is migrated from EP5 to EP6.

There is an iView (extends from AbstractPortalComponent) which is deployed on <u>multiple</u> sites in the portal. It only has an input-field and a button in the jsp and it stores the submitted data in the HttpSession (to use by other iView on the multiple sites).

It is necessary that the submitted data from the input field of this iView is also set in the input field on the other sites if the user opens an other site. In EP5 it works fine but in EP6 the input field is filled different on every site. It shows the last entries submitted from this site but different on every site. So every site has it own session? My question is, which class from the EP6 API is usable to store Attributes (like session.setAttribute("...","...") in Servlets) which are available in the complete Portal-Context?

Or does anyone has a link to a documentation about this Problem?

Thanks for your help.

    there is an httpsession (from the portal servlet) and the portal component session (per portal component, per iView).

    Now: it all depends on what name is used in the http session for those iviews. If they use a name derived from the portal component context name than this would be different between pages in EP6, but identical between pages in EP5.
