Subject Can the manager app drop sessions on a start?
Date Mon, 17 Oct 2005 20:02:41 GMT
I'm running Tomcat 5.0.28 on Linux, for a development platform. After updating 
an application, Tomcat (or possibly the manager app) can't start the 
application if it has sessions pending. One of my co-workers thinks that this 
is a session serialization issue, in that our application keeps lots of non-
serialized objects in the session. (Yes, I know that this is not optimal, but 
it is within our operational parameters for reliability.) I can restart the 
application by undeploying it and then redeploying the directory. 

If the session serialization hypothesis is correct, I'd like to be able to have 
the ability to tell manager to ignore these sessions and just start the 
application. I don't think that the manager has this capability anywhere, since 
I did RTFM, but I'd be delighted to be told that I'm wrong, or if I'm right, 
I'd love to hear some thoughts on how I'd be able to code this myself. I don't 
have thorough enough knowledge of Tomcat's innards to have any idea of where to 
begin my research.
