Instructions for how to setup TomcatAzureSessionManager

Deployment

Tomcat 6, 7 
1 Copy the tomcat-azure-session-manager[version].jar from the dist folder to [CATALINA_HOME]/lib
2 Copy all of the jar files from lib/deploy folder to [CATALINA_HOME]/lib 
3 Configure the following attributes in the tomcat instance context.xml file, <Manager> element

Attribute           Description
className          	must be set to uk.co.atomus.session.manager.AtomusManager
accountKey        	The azure storage account key
accountName			The azure storage account name
tableName         	The name of the table storage table to use for sessions (will be created if does not exist)
partitionKey       	Corresponds to partitionKey in table storage

Your Manager tag should end up looking something like this

    <Manager className="uk.co.atomus.session.manager.AtomusManager" 
            accountKey="<accountKey>"
            accountName="<accountName>"
            tableName="tomcatSessions"
            partitionKey="<application name>"     
...

Sessions are shared across all instances which use these settings.
