This project uses buildr for build management. Have a look at http://buildr.apache.org for how to install buildr (the "Getting started" section should be fine). == Build the sources == $ buildr package == Installation == Copy the created memcached-session-manager-1.0.jar from the target directory to $CATALINA_HOME/libs, and lib/* as well. Notice: this project is running against/with tomcat6, I have not tested it with other versions of tomcat. == Configuration == In the server.xml (or the context.xml) add an appropriate <Manager/> element to your context, so that this looks like this: <Context path="/hunter"> <Manager className="de.javakaffee.web.msm.MemcachedBackupSessionManager" memcachedNodes="n1:localhost:11211 n2:localhost:11212" failoverNodes="n2" requestUriIgnorePattern=".*\.(png|gif|jpg|css|js)$" /> </Context> You can use several failoverNodes seperated by comma. == Run / Test == Startup two memcached nodes (or a single one, but then you also must change the configuration shown above) and two tomcats behind an apache/loadbalancer. You should be able to use the tomcat examples or just deploy an application of yourself. Then make a request that creates a session. Afterwards shut down the tomcat on which the session was created and see that the session is taken over by the second tomcat. Now relax or go and grab a coffee :)
