Hi all,

There are 2 questions pertaining to browser cloning which I need help on:

1) If the user does a Ctrl-N after loading the main page on my application, session attributes will overlap each other, say for instance, session.getAttribute("testObj") will retrieve values from parent browser though I am doing enquiry on child browser.

2) If the user does a Ctrl-N in the midst of submitting a form, the child browser's session will be inherited from the parent browser, hence, the user will be able to submit the same record twice, once from the parent browser, once from the child.

In view of the 2 questions as mentioned, is there anyway we can make sure at any one time, only one instance of the web application is active?

Any help or advice is deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance.
