I have a page with three frames.

The top frame is a login form.
The left frame is a navigation menu.
The right frame is the main page.

The problem is that when a login is a success, I put String values into a session.  Should the String values in the session ever turn null, I know that my session has expired.

There is no problem when my server is run from it's main URL:  www.mycompany.com

The problem is that when my alias www.mycompany.org is loggin in, the menu appears, the values are put into the session(same code), but my main pages saying that my session has timed out...

problem solved.

I used HttpUtils.getRequestURL(request).toString();

for some reason, my frames were generating new sessions for www.site1.com www.site2.com, and www.site3.com even though they were all the same WebServer.

My code, however, had a login screen sending logins to a servlet on www.site1.com only....


Is there any way to control how people log in?

I run admin functions on users on line, current searches, etc.  and I want to force all logins to one static servlet.

may be a redirector can work if the login is of admin one can send him to adminServlet and the rest will go to some other page.
other way may be is to have a utility running at a port other that the normal 80. This utility will handle all requests at that port and can work as admin utility
