Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of WebSphere eXtreme Scale for    *
    *                  HTTP session replication.                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: By default, one eXtreme Scale cookie    *
    *                      is created for each application.        *
    *                      However, if you are using HTTP          *
    *                      session replication on multiple         *
    *                      applications, session data can be       *
    *                      lost if one user makes requests to      *
    *                      both applications.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Because only one eXtreme Scale cookie is used, users with web
    applications that use different cookie names that are
    accessed in the same user session, experience session data
    loss.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere eXtreme Scale client code has been fixed to allow
    multiple cookies to track the various application session IDs.
    Configure the applicationQualifiedCookies splicer property
    and set the value to "true" to enable this feature.
