           Summary: add support for session attribute propagation without
                    calls to DeltaSession.setAttribute
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.23
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina:Cluster
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: clucas@e-miles.com


This enhancement request is based on our misunderstanding of Tomcat clustering.
We were under the impression that we could use the "useDirtyFlag" attribute in
conjunction with DeltaManager to cause session replication to occur after each
request (vs only on certain requests that manipulate the session via
Session.setAttribute, etc.)  Apparently useDirtyFlag is not applicable to
DeltaManager.

In our scenario, this is problematic because we have a mutable object that is
stored in the session and manipulated after a call to Session.getAttribute but
not followed by a new call to Session.setAttribute.  Because there is no
setAttribute call, the session is not propagated.

Our "fix" was to add a call to the internal version of DeltaSession.setAttribute
(not notifying listeners) from within DeltaSession.getAttribute.  If desired and
with some direction, I could submit a patch that would make this behavior
configurable.
