How to avoid "session merging" when the same CF application is opened twice
Posted on 2009-05-13
If a user opens the same ColdFusion application in two different instances of IE6 (or in two different tabs of IE7), the two instances of the application will interfere with each other because they will share a single set of session variables. How can we either a) prevent a user from starting a second instance of a ColdFusion application on the same machine, or b) prevent multiple instances of the ColdFusion application from interfering with each other's session variables?
Logging in twice with the same credentials is not the issue as long as the user logs on from two different machines. The question I'm asking involves opening the same application twice on the same machine.
We work in an environment where we restrict our user community to IE only.
Thanks in advance.
