Uwe -

Is there an inconsistency between the path of the cookie as seen by Tomcat
(and as shown in Firefox cookie properties) and the path which the OpenCms
web app is seeing from your browser?  That would point to an OpenCms

Subject: [opencms-dev] problem with java-session under OpenCMS 6

Hello all, 

I encountered a serious problem: we wrote serveral JSPs which are making use
of a HttpSession, e.g.: 

<% @page session="true" %>
	session.setAttribute("testattribute", "testvalue"); %> 

The problem is that every time I request the page I get a different, new
session. My browser is cookie-enabled and a cookie "JSESSIONID"
exists. Our environment: 

Tomcat 4.1.x
OpenCMS 6.0.0 

Tested with Firefox 1.0
I'm glad about any hints. Thanks in advance. 
Best regards, 

Uwe König
