Sharing session state between JEE web applications through WebLogic session descriptor of sharing-enabled
Lucas Jellema discusses how to configure shared session state between different web modules of an enterprise application with WebLogic Server.
With Session Sharing enabled in WebLogic Server, web applications are clustered in a sense that they share session state – which basically means they use the same SessionId for a user’s browser session. The Map that holds the user session specific data is the same for all web applications deployed to a WebLogic Server with session sharing enabled.
APPC from ANT
Duncan Mills from the Oracle Tools team shares his learnings from a recent exploration of executing the WebLogic APPC utility from a custom ant script.
More ways to check the existence of a resource with WLST
In our from-the-archive section this week, we have Bala Kothandaraman showing the range of techniques he uses to determine the existence of a resource from the WebLogic Scripting Tool (wlst), very handy!
