    Session Replication (need to log-in again)

    renevanwijk Newbie

      Using JBoss EAP 6.1.0 Alpha (http://www.jboss.org/jbossas/downloads/) - using EAP instead of AS as this will also be our platform in production.

       

      The problem is with session replication and login (actually the session is replicated, but the user must log-in again). The test set-up is as follows

       

      {code}

      package userinterface.servlets;

       

       

      import model.entities.Klant;

      import javax.servlet.ServletException;

      import javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet;

      import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;

      import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

      import javax.servlet.http.HttpSession;

      import java.io.IOException;

      import java.io.PrintWriter;

      import java.util.Enumeration;

      import java.util.Random;

       

       

      public class TestServlet extends HttpServlet {

       

       

          private Random generator;

       

       

          @Override

          public void init() throws ServletException {

              generator = (Random)getServletContext().getAttribute("generator");

          }

       

       

          @Override

          protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {

              HttpSession session = request.getSession(false);

       

       

              // generate a random client

              Klant klant = createKlant();

       

       

              // insert a client

              session.setAttribute(klant.getKlantnummer().toString(), klant);

              if (generator.nextDouble() < 0.001) {

                  // remove a client

                  session.removeAttribute(generateKlantNummer().toString());

              } else {

                  // find a client by ID

                  session.getAttribute(generateKlantNummer().toString());

              }

       

       

              PrintWriter writer = response.getWriter();

              Enumeration<String> clientids = session.getAttributeNames();

              while (clientids.hasMoreElements()) {

                  writer.println(session.getAttribute(clientids.nextElement()));

              }

              writer.flush();

              writer.close();

          }

       

       

          private Klant createKlant() {

              int klantnummer = generateKlantNummer();

       

       

              Klant klant = new Klant();

              klant.setKlantnummer(klantnummer);

              klant.setNaam("Middleware" + klantnummer);

              klant.setAdres("Magic");

              klant.setStad("Pune");

              klant.setProvincie("IN");

              klant.setPostcode("1234AB");

              klant.setGebied(1);

              klant.setTelefoonnummer("123-4567");

              klant.setReputatieNummer(1);

              klant.setKredietlimiet(Math.rint(generator.nextDouble() * 5000.0));

              klant.setCommentaar(Long.toString(Math.abs(generator.nextLong()), 36));

       

       

              return klant;

          }

       

       

          private Integer generateKlantNummer() {

              return generator.nextInt(10000);

          }

      }

      {code}

       

      in which the 'Klant' object implements the Serializable interface. The deployment descriptor (web.xml) has the following contents:

       

      {code:xml}

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

      The roles are mapped to two different users 'employee' and 'manager'.

       

      The environment consists of two servers on one host. When the servers are started the following is observed in the logging

      Next, the application is accessed on two different browsers (chrome and firefox) by two different users. When looking in the mod_cluster_manager the following is observed:

      Next, we shutdown the server on which the requests have been coming in (funny thing as well, as two different users have logged in from two different hosts, the users seem to have come to only one server. This is observed from the request count metric of the Web subsystem). After the server has been shutdown the following is observed in the logging:

      When the users resume their requests, they first have to log-in, after the which the session is available in the state it was before the server shutdown. Are there extra steps necessary, such that the users do not have to log-in again?

      Also you would assume the load balancer to work as well, i.e., when one user log-in it is directed to server1, when another logs-in it is directed to server2. Could someone shed a light on this?
