You implement session caching with the HTTP Session Management Module for AppServers with a special filter, defined in the
web.xml, which is configured to intercept and wrap all requests.
You can use this HTTP module with a variety of application servers. Wrapping each request allows the interception of
getSession() calls to be handled by GemFire instead of the native container. This approach is a generic solution, which is supported by any container that implements the Servlet 3.1 specification.
Setting Up the HTTP Module for AppServers
To use the module, you need to modify your application’s
web.xml files. Configuration is slightly different depending on the topology you are setting up.
Changing the Default GemFire Configuration in the AppServers Module
By default, the AppServers module will run GemFire automatically with preconfigured settings. You can change these GemFire settings.
