Subject RE: Configure Tomcat's Session Cookie Domain?
Date Wed, 17 Nov 2004 01:18:28 GMT

Thanks.  What I suspected.  Is this to adhere to a spec, or simply
functionality not (yet?) developed for Tomcat?

I've created a workaround session manager that manually sets its own
cookies.  One result being that my scaling strategy can't rely on the
session replication of Tomcat... I'll have to use a firewall with sticky
sessions.  But enough whining from me... like always, there's a workaround.

Nope. Can't do it.

But if you really need it to be more domain generic - there is nothing
stopping you from expiring the JSESSIONID cookie and setting a newer one at
a more generic level. (But this will probably cause future issues)
