Subject Re: Load Balance sticky_session=True, am I missing something?
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2007 07:58:50 GMT
Concerning the load balancer worker: you need to set jvmRoute in 
server.xml on your Tomcat servers. The value of the respective jvmRoute 
has to be wrkr1 and wrkr2.

This will add that string to the session id (JSESSSIONID cookie or 
jsessionid= URL part) and mod_jk strips it from there to learn, where 
the sticky request should go to.
