Hello Tianshuo,

That article talks about deploying session manager on Kylin 1.6, which is using tomcat 7.

But kylin 2.0 beta is using tomcat 8, where there might be compatible issues on those libraries.

after I update to 2.0 kylin can't start with redis session manager, the redis session manager I use is the same as this article describe,but it doesn't support tomcat 8.0,so is there any way to walk around that issue?
