For testing purposes an “embedded” Redis server is used, which is provided by a Spring Java configuration, as follows: package eas.session; import Redis Properties; import org.springframework.context.annotation. Bean; import org.springframework.context.annotation. You may notice that the session id format has changed, since Redis uses UUID format, while Tomcat produces strings without any dashes.IOException; import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation. You may check the differences, by accessing the same controller via which so far isn’t yet integrated with Spring’s session abstraction.For the sake of simplicity, I will stick with an embedded Redis server instance, which, of course, does not replicate across multiple JVMs, automatically. Request Mapping; @Controller @Request Mapping ( ) public class Session Controller The controller is bound to two separate URLs relative to the application context, namely /ui/session and /cli/session.

So why should you care about a session abstraction as the one provided by Spring.

Actually, there are a couple of reasons, so I will just name a few of them: Luckily, the solution to all these problems is far more simple than it seems: Session management has to become part of the application itself, getting rid of the servlet container or application server in that case.

The idea is to be capable of accessing the very same session both via cookie, as for the UI, and via HTTP request header token in the case of the CLI.

The previously configured Session Repository Filter provides the means to configure an HTTP session strategy explicitly, so a second filter simply has to be added to the XML configuration, as follows: Note, that both filter registrations have an explicit name configured. Otherwise Spring will deduce a name for each filter registration automatically, which in both cases boils down to delegating Filter Proxy, thus, ignoring the second registration silently.

This post introduces you to Spring Session, by showing you how easy it is to replicate sessions in a vendor neutral way and how they can be used across different protocols and technologies.

When it comes to web application development, user session handling is as easy as obtaining an HTTP session from a request.

Tomcat has default timeout of 30 minutes but the default timeout depends on container to container.

The default session timeout can be changed by two ways1. Programatically But when to use configuration and when set it Programatically ?

The Header Http Session Strategy used for the second filter registration uses an HTTP header attribute named x-auth-token, which may be configured differently, if required.
