What is the difference between session and globalSession in Spring framework?
<bean id="exampleBean" class="com.test.baen.ExampleBean" scope="session"/>
<bean id="exampleBean" class="com.test.baen.ExampleBean" scope="globalSession"/>
globalSession is something which is connected to Portlet applications. When your application works in Portlet container it is built of some amount of portlets. Each portlet has its own session, but if your want to store variables global for all portlets in your application than you should store them in
globalSession. This scope doesn't have any special effect different from
session scope in Servlet based applications.
