Is there a way to get the same SAS-Session with Different Clients.

We have a Java program that performs several of STP programs and stores the results in the SAS session.

Now we would like to access the results via a web browser as a PDF, but the SAS STP is getting the message out

that the SAS session was not created with the same client.

Is there a way to get the same SAS-Session with Different Clients.

Thanks

Re: Is there a way to get the same SAS-Session with Different Clients.

Please provide some more information on your java program - what does it do? How is it executed?

And what kind of result are we talking about?

Do you wish to access the result via a web server/SAS portal...?

We call on the StoredProcesses in Java via HttpClient and get back as Resutl XML. The XML is then processed using JAXB and displayed on a thin client. Since not the entire result directly processed, the result is placed in the SAS session.

For printing a PDF is used that is generated over a StoredProcess.
So far, this is passed to the thin client. However, the server would not weigh too much with the big pdfs we like to show this in the browser. But in Brower always get the message, the session was not created from the same client.

The issue is there are single sign on with Session for different clients

I lack of experience when it comes o using Java clients this way, I guess that you can't streamline the PDF the same way as the XML?

Also, I think it's hard for you to connect to a existing StP session with other client than original way - check with tech support if you want to confirm this.

Other options could be to store the the PDF in a suitable location, and link from the client.

Or store the result in a shared location (not SAS Work), which a separate StP can access.
