Subject RE: AXIS, SOAP and cookie based routing
Date Fri, 06 Jan 2006 02:37:37 GMT
I am not trying to use cookies to maintain session.  I want to use cookies
for load balancer affinity.  The idea is that every session going to a
server will have the same cookie -- and only my software will know what name
and value to use based on the server.

When I read this it looks like Axis is creating a cookie with the name it
wants to use and a value that varies by sessions on the same server.

For basic session handling using cookies, at server:


At client:

XYZServiceLocator xyz_locator = new XYZServiceLocator();
