Linking Struts Application with FLEX Application

Hi

I have multiple modules, some of them are implement in struts and other are in  flex (blaze ds) and each module is a different war file ( web application). now i need to share the session Object among all the applications.

my problems are

1. how to share a session object between two different struts applications
2. how to share struts modules' httpSession object with Flex module
3. how to share blazeds's FlexSession with Struts module.
4. if session sharing is not possible can i share a normal java object like USERInFO which should be removed if session is lost.

i tried 4th problem by serialization but if user loses the session it got some security issues..

anybody suggest any other ways to resolve this problem

Using this you can have a common place from requests can be forwarded and redirected to a appropriate application (url)

thanks for your solution

From your solution we can forward the request to any other appropriate application url, but how can we maintain the present session in other application.

how to carry the present session object to the next application..

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

i haven't tried this, but same session object should be carried to the other URL

Session information is scoped only to the current web application (ServletContext), so information stored in one context will not be directly visible in another.

check this
http://www.stardeveloper.com/articles/display.html?article=2001062401&page=1

you can forward the request to another servlet in same server using RequestDispatcher.forward() method.

yes we can forward the request to another servlet in same server using  RequestDispatcher.forward()

but my problem is maintaining same user session when communicating between two different  "web appliactions".
