Selecting a Backend Server

In testing situations, it can be important to select a particular backend server when making a request of the front-end server. The easiest solution is to take advantage of sticky sessions and use the ";jsessionid=" url.

Supposed in the following cluster of three backend servers, you wanted to test the second one, i.e. the one listening to You could send a request to "/test.jsp;jsessionid=bXXXX".


<resin xmlns="">
    <server id="a" address="" port="6800"/>
    <server id="b" address="" port="6801"/>
    <server id="c" address="" port="6802"/>

The 'b' will select the second server. Because that request uses URL rewriting and also because "bXXXX" value is too short, Resin will generate a new session instead of using the cookie value of "bXXXX".

Note, the non-reuse of the session value "bXXXX" is affected by the <reuse-session-id> configuration.
