    Disabling Session Persistence


    Since JBoss-3.2.6RC1:


    The default tomcat session manager will persist sessions. This can lead to problems when restarting jboss or redeploying a war if the session contains non-serializable data.


    To disable session persistence, you create a WEB-INF/context.xml with a Manager element that sets the pathname to an empty value:


       <Manager className="org.apache.catalina.session.StandardManager"
          pathname="" ></Manager>


    JBoss-3.2.5 and earlier do not read the WEB-INF/context.xml file.


    JBoss 4.0.3 has this disabled by default.  See /jboss-4.0.3/server/default/deploy/jbossweb-tomcat55.sar/context.xml
