The way to make it work for both the AJAX viewer and the DWF viewer is
to have the client send the current selection to your server-side
script, instead of having the server script trying to get the selection
from the session repository.

If your script is invoked from a web layout command 'Invoke URL', have
the current selection sent to the script by adding in Studio the
parameter $CurrentSelection to the command. If your script is invoked by
custom Javascript code, have this code retrieve the current selection
with GetSelectionXML() and add a parameter to your URL to send this
selection to the server. In this case be careful to use a POST request
and not a GET, as the size of the selection might exceed the maximum
length supported for a GET request (usually about 1K). Look at the
Submit() method in FormFrame, which makes it easy to do a POST request.

But what if we want to make it work in DWF Viewer. Is there any
workaround ?
