AWE allows developers to configure the application session in two ways: Using the default
HttpSession (Basic session) deployed by the application server or using Spring Session instead.
AWE, by default, uses a basic application server
HttpSession object. So no action is required to configure this option. This option is useful when you deploy your application on a clustered environment and the balancer server uses the
JSESSIONID cookie generated by the application server.
Spring session allows the application to be deployed using a shared session server storage, such as REDIS, MONGO, HAZELCAST or even JDBC connections. To activate the usage of spring session in your application simply add the following depencency to your
<!-- Spring session -->
The configuration of spring session is defined on
session.properties. These properties are defined on properties configuration page.
