Re: getThreadLocalRequest.getSession null

Use your browser dev tools to inspect the network request. You should check if server B sends back a session id cookie and that this session id cookie is transmitted back to the server for the second method that does getSession(false). If it doesn't or the session is already invalidated (either through code or through session timeout configuration on server B) then getSession(false) will return null.

I have a gwt app that is running when deployed on tomcat on server A
For some reason the same app when is deployed on tomcat on a server B has a session issue

We have Method 1 and Method 2 inside a servlet that extends RemoteServiceServlet

We have a method1 in which we do:
this.getThreadLocalRequest.getSession(true).setAttribute("myuserid", myuserid)

Then in a second method we do
which throws a null pointer exception as getSession retuns null

It is strange as this only happens on the server B
I have verified the tomcat config files like context.xml files and they are identical

I have printed currentThread.gtId() inside both methods and they are different but as said no issue on server A.
