Subject Redirection after Tomcat restart
Date Mon, 22 Sep 2008 20:21:29 GMT
I am running Tomcat 6.0.18.

My application uses form based authentication.

I am not sure how to handle the case where a user navigates to one of the
secure page after logging in and Tomcat is restarted. The problem is that
from the secured page, if the user clicks on any of the links after the
restart, Tomcat will redirect to the login page (which is expected) and
then, after the login, it will execute the code that it would normally
execute when the user clicks on the link. The problem that I am facing is
that since the application is using a new session, there might be some
session based variables that are not initialized. Ultimately, if Tomcat is
restarted, I would rather the user be redirected to a predetermined page
(some kind of home page), but it seems that instead, and I believe this is
as per the servlet spec, Tomcat displays the page information it had stored
in its container before restarting.

Any advice on how to best handle this?
