Broken design: session cookie name should be specified on the Context level instead of the Engine level

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      In web.xml [2], user is allowed to configure cookie name per context. However, in MCMP [1] this configuration is only propagated on the CONFIG - org.jboss.modcluster.container.Engine level.

      This essentially means that user configuring a cookie name different from the default / or default host configuration will have broken session stickiness.
