A client system utilizes a standard browser component and a transaction protocol gateway (TPG) component that operatively couples to the standard browser component. The browser component initiates the utilization of new session connections and reuse of existing session connections as a function of the coding of the universal resource locators (URLs) contained in each issued request. Each URL is passed to the TPG component that examines a context field included within the URL. If the context field has been set to a first value, the TPG component opens a new session connection to the server system and records the session connection information in a persistent session table (PST) component maintained by the TPG component. If the context field has been set to a second value, then the TPG component obtains the session connection information in the PST component for the established session connection and passes the data from the browser component to the server system over the existing persistent session connection.
