How to maintain the Single Sign-On?.

We have 3 applications EmployerWeb, SalesWeb and CustomerWeb and all are running on WebSphere application server6.0
We would like to maintain the Single Sign-on for all applications.

The current system generating one token when logged in to the system and which is a having encrypted UID and PWD.
The home page will display the hyper links which user have the access.

 <a href="SalesWeb/"> Sales  </a>
 <a href="CustomerWeb/"> Customers </a>

based on the ticket value the respective application is getting the UID/PWD and again login to the system.

I am not happy with this solution. It is creating two sessions one at employerWeb application and other when they click on the link.

How to make it more meaningful

Thank you

    Are they sharing the same database? If so, you may be interested to record a timestamp indicating when this user is logged in and setting this value into NULL if he has logged out. This may be tricky if you have some timeout in your app
