Create an ASP session from a JSP page
Posted on 2003-04-01
Sounds a bit odd bit here is the scenario:
I have a JSP web app with a login page. Within this site, there is a page with an <IFRAME> tag that points to an ASP page. The ASP page requires credentials (via basic authentication) but I don't want the user to be forced to log in again. The credentials are the same. I would like to 'invisibly' call the ASP page (or another ASP page written for this purpose?) from the JSP login page once I have the credentials and establish an ASP session so that when the page containing the IFrame is hit, a session will already exist for the user and they will not be prompted. The user must not know the call to the ASP is being done. It should be one seamless login to the JSP app from their perspective.
How can this be done?
