Dear all,
i have a servlet application with session handling which works fine with apache-Jserv. I'm trying to port the same to apache-tomcat. I'm creating a session object in the login page which calls a servlet. but the session object is null in the servlet which is being called
i.e request.getSession(false) returns null.
Can anyone please help me?

Hi manjumurthy, I asked a few Apache folks I know, and that one is rather specific. Not sure where you could get an answer for it. I would probably try the comp infosystems servers group in usenet.

I have *no* experience with this setup, but section 3.1 looks like it goes into how to configure tomcat to work with servlets.
