Subject [jira] Commented: (AXISCPP-226) Provide session handling suport (cookies)
Date Mon, 01 Nov 2004 08:19:33 GMT

Samisa Abeysinghe commented on AXISCPP-226:

There is no standard way of managing session in a Web service, although there are two accepted
techniques. The first is to rely on HTTP and use HTTP cookies. The second, and probably the
most significant way, is to use SOAP headers. Axis Java lets developers do both.

Using HTTP managed sessions is the default in Axis Java. 
This will cause the Axis framework to generate a set-cookie header:

A client needs to return this Cookie in a Cookie header to maintain the session. 
The header looks like this: 

Using SOAP headers to carry the session id. 
Axis Java comes with a handler called org.apache.axis.handlers.SimpleSessionHandler that provides
SOAP header based session management.
