Creating Custom Login Page.

Hi all,

Background:
I am trying to create a custom login page from scratch using the ExtJS framework (all Javascript).  Like any other login page it has a username and a password field. The fields are sent via an Ajax GET request to the the Alfresco web script '/org/alfresco/repository/login' for authentication.  The webscript establishes a ticket and returns it, but the user session is not maintained and in order to access any other webscript I would need to login (the default generic login pop-up appears).

Issue:
Is there any way to maintain authentication of a user? 
How do I use the ticket that's being returned from the login webscript? 
Doesn't the webscript create a session in the browser until the ticket gets deleted?

Any suggestion is welcomed, I am willing to take any alternative.  The key is to not use any Alfresco UI.

Thanks
:)
