Session support allows a Web application developer to maintain state information across multiple user visits to the application. In this IBM® Redpaper™ publication, we discuss HTTP session support in WebSphere® Application Server V7 and how to configure it. We also discuss the support for stateful session bean failover.
This paper is the stand-alone version of chapter 12 of WebSphere Application Server V7 Administration and Configuration Guide, SG24-7615.
