My boss assigns me to follow up an internet project, this project includes
an java applet and some servlets to make data calls to database. I have
tried to run the servlets in debug mode within WSAD 5.1.2 (I configured
Websphere 5.1 test server) and it is fine, I can step through each statements
in the servlets. But when I tried to run the java applet in debug mode and
the applet called the servlets to retrieve something,the applet was unable to
get the session ID (by sessionid()), I am not familiar with the WSAD before,
I don't know whether the applet debug process can attach to the servlet
debug server, or I suspect there are the two debug processes (two VMs)
running for applet and servlets separately?

If you can, please give me more details on running debug mode with
applet and servlet such that I can debug the source from applet to servlet and
vice versa.

Please give me some advice as I urgently need to know how to fix it.

Thanks for your kind attention and help,
