If I save an object into the session in a clustered env, is there anything I need to do to "synchronize" that access across the diff. parts of the cluster? Or does/should every implementation of a clustered web server handle this (for example with RMI stubs/proxy or whatever)?
I'm sure choices vary among containers. WebSphere can persist the session to a database with several options for how often. We use this with 6 clones and find we can stop & restart one or two at a time with no session problems.
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
