HTTP Session Management Module for AppServers

You implement session caching with the HTTP Session Management Module for AppServers with a special filter, defined in the web.xml, which is configured to intercept and wrap all requests.

You can use this HTTP module with a variety of applicaiton servers. Wrapping each request allows the interception of getSession() calls to be handled by GemFire instead of the native container. This approach is a generic solution, which is supported by any container that implements the Servlet 2.4 specification. (See HTTP Session Management Quick Start for a list of tested application servers.)
