Subject Re: JK Sticky Session Handling with Load Balancing
Date Tue, 18 Apr 2006 11:32:27 GMT
Hi there,
  You're setting the sticky_session property for each worker. That's not
how it works.
  That property is valid only for the loadbalancer and it takes a
boolean value. Set it to 'True' or '1' to get the desired effect.
  Read for
more info.
