Weblogic JSessionID Persistence

A customer of mine found this article, which uses JSessionID for WebLogic persistence:



sol7392: Overview of universal persistence:



But I am having a difficult time understanding why Cookie persistence would not accomplish exactly the same thing? If the client can accept a JSessionID cookie, then I think it is safe to assume it can accept an LTM cookie. Assuming that's true, is there some other reason why Cookie persistence wouldn't work too?

  • I agree with you. The only reason I can think of for using UIE persistence based off of an application cookie value is if you want to persist across virtuals/pools/services (which the cookie insert persistence profile doesn't support).



    Cookie insert persistence is simpler and more efficient for TMM versus mapping app cookie values to a server in its own memory.



  • Thanks hoolio, I just needed that sanity check to make sure I wasn't missing something obvious. It also makes sense intuitively that it is more efficient to use Cookie persistence. Thanks for the feedback.
