Hi,
I have a JSP page with an applet in it. The applet talks to a Servlet. The session object that is present in my JSP page is not accessable in my servlet.
How can I get the session object from my JSP page to the Servlet through an Applet?

Thanks
Uma

You can pass the sessionid to the applet as a parameter:

  <parameter name="sess" value="<%= "" + session.getId() %>"/>

Then, you should be able to put the session into the servlet connection in the applet:

   servletConnection.setRequestProperty( "cookie", sess ) ;

Any good?

one more thing is that, this problem is having only for the first time when I log in. As soon as my session in null, I am redirected to the login page again. If I login again using the same browser, now everything works fine.

> in my applet?

I guess you create a URLConnection to your servlet (from inside the applet)?

There is where you set the session id

> How do I get the session in my servlet?

  public void doPost( HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res )
  {
      HttpSession session = req.getSession() ;

To use Tim's idea, maybe you could try
<parameter name="sess" value="<%= "jsessionid=" + session.getId() %>"/>

Or maybe add

servletConnection.setRequestProperty( "jsessionid", sess ) ;

as well as

servletConnection.setRequestProperty( "cookie", sess ) ;

Though this isn't necessary in my code...
