Hi All,

My web site is made up by PHP and jsp.  They use different sessions.  Therefore is there any method that can integrate them such that they use the same session?

Thanks a lot!

regards,

There are probably many approaches to this but the ones that I know of are:

1.  Make your Session DB driven.  So you store all your session data in a DB (some application servers support this just via a config change) and then you set the JSP session id in the cookie.  PHP will read this session ID and access and write session data to the corresponding row in the session data base.

2.  use a flat file structure for the above.

You would have to separate your DB to a separate server so both webservers will use it.  And to uniquely gauruntee the session id use apache's session id generator or use your own algorithm that will incorporate the server name/id in it..
