Sticky session for cookiless clients
I am in study phase of a project where I would like to ensure session persistence between cookieless web clients and application server instances (Tomcat or Weblogic).
Between the web clients and the application servers instances hosting my webapps I consider using an F5 Load Balancer (hence posting this topic here, apologies if this is not the correct forum).
Hence the session needs to be persisted somehow. I would like to avoid handling this at server side by doing some URL rewriting.
1) Can this be done using a specific F5 equipement / setting, which equipement and how ?
2) Can I ensure session persistence based on HTTP header sent by the client (cookiless). Will F5 equipement store in a table the header value and the session id to find out the application server instance at the next query ?
Many Thanks for your answers.
