Sharing session object across Web Components in J2EE

Hi,

This question is really urgent and I do hope someone can help me out! Thanks!

I'm using the J2EE architecture to implement an E-commerce website.

I have a few subsystems to implement for eg: Member, Shopping, Forum, Auctions.

I will be creating a single Application using the Deploytool, and add individual web components to this application. Each webcomponent will contain the jsps and servlets for each subsystem.

Say, a client logs into the system through the Member webcomponent, I can't access the session object created for this client in the other webcomponents. Hence, the client(user) can't do Shopping, Forum ,Auctions etc..even though he had already logged in.

how may I share this session object across the differrent webcomponents? Thanks loads for any help rendered..

the answer is NO, you cannot.

the alternative solution is to use standard J2EE security. see this:

Hi all,
Sorry for not returning back to the question, until I got a "warning" in my email. Sort of forgot about it. My bad.
Thanks for the help rendered though!
