    Set cookie on login redirect for HW LB

    def Newbie

      Hi,

      I'm using JBoss 3.2.1 and Tomcat 4.1.24 with the
      DatabaseServerLoginModule to authenticate users.
      In addition, I am using a hardware load balancer with
      cookie-based session persistence. My code sets the
      cookie with a default value, which the Alteon LB then
      rewrites with session information it will use later.

      The Alteon requires that the cookie be present on
      the first response in the session, which in this case
      is the 302/redirect to my login FORM.

      My problem is that the 302/redirect to the login.jsp
      does not contain the cookie. I do not see a way to
      add the cookie to the container's redirect to the login
      page. The net result is that the first reply contains
      no cookie, the LB gets confused, and there is no
      session persistence

      Your help appreciated in figuring out how/where
      to write the cookie.

      Thanks much.
