Alright guys, I have a huge problem, that is most likely a bug or something like that.
Let me describe the situation: I have two applications. In the first application I create session variable to keep some data. Then I call with "in_keepsession_yn => 'Y'" to keep this data. Now, when I call the second application, everything is fine. The app appears, the session remains and I can go on.
The next thing I would want to do would be getting back to the first application because this second one is just some kind of sub screen/sub application, whereas the first one acts kind of like a main menu or something similar. Thing is, the going back doesn't work! When I set in_keepsession_yn to 'N' then it works, but apparently Formspider has a problem with keeping a session and going back to an application the user already visited.
To show you exactly what I mean, I created two very simple applications and uploaded the exported XMLs and the corresponding PL/SQL here because I don't have the ability to upload something here.
This is really weird, but I hope you can help me!

Hi Mazzel,

Thanks for the sample apps. We'll take a look and get back to you.

Obviously, you quickly have to change the Datasource Schema for both the applications.

Oh and btw.: I observed that occasionally it happens to work just fine for a few times. But it is anything but guaranteed that it works.

Any solutions found on this, yet?

Hi Mazzel,

It's in the queue. The last few weeks have been crazy busy.

Can you email the sample app please to contact at theformspider dot com. I downloaded it a while ago but can't seem to find it and the file is not available online anymore.

I understand, it's no problem. I sent that email you requested.

Any progress on this, yet? I experienced that sometimes it works just fine.. But it's not reliable (which it should be) and it's unpredictable when it's gonna work or not.. Oh, and it still is more often the case that it doesn't work than that it does.

Hi Mazzel,

I'm able to reproduce this problem in IE. Are you experiencing this problem in Chrome or Firefox?

(24 Jan '14, 16:26) Ibrahim Sand... ♦♦

Yes, I'm having this problem in both Chrome and Firefox. Haven't tried IE, though. But good to hear that it's happening there, as well..
However, as I already said, sometimes I can switch between these applications back and forth 10 times in a row and sometimes I can only call one application and cannot call the other one from that point. It's pretty unpredictable. I haven't found any kind of pattern, anyway..
And the most important thing is: It has to do something with keeping the session because, as I also stated, setting in_keepsession_yn to 'N' makes it work.
