Subject Re: Redirection after Tomcat restart
Date Tue, 23 Sep 2008 07:59:52 GMT
Another possibility is to set up tomcat to serialize session to disk
before restart. Tt deserializes all session at the start up so user will
remain login with all session variables it in ideal case he won't notice
the restart at all.
