Spring Session

spring session

Build Status

Spring Session provides an API and implementations for managing a user’s session information, while also making it trivial to support clustered sessions without being tied to an application container specific solution. It also provides transparent integration with:

  • HttpSession - allows replacing the HttpSession in an application container (i.e. Tomcat) neutral way, with support for providing session IDs in headers to work with RESTful APIs.

  • WebSocket - provides the ability to keep the HttpSession alive when receiving WebSocket messages

  • WebSession - allows replacing the Spring WebFlux’s WebSession in an application container neutral way.


This Spring Session repository consists of the following modules:

  • Spring Session Core - provides core Spring Session functionalities and APIs

  • Spring Session Data Redis - provides SessionRepository and ReactiveSessionRepository implementation backed by Redis and configuration support

  • Spring Session JDBC - provides SessionRepository implementation backed by a relational database and configuration support

  • Spring Session Hazelcast - provides SessionRepository implementation backed by Hazelcast and configuration support

  • Spring Session MongoDB - provides SessionRepository implementation backed by MongoDB and configuration support

Additional Spring Session modules can be found in the spring-session-data-geode repository.

Building from Source

Spring Session uses a Gradle-based build system. In the instructions below, ./gradlew is invoked from the root of the source tree and serves as a cross-platform, self-contained bootstrap mechanism for the build.

Check out sources

git clone

Install all spring-\* jars into your local Maven cache

./gradlew install

Compile and test; build all jars, distribution zips, and docs

./gradlew build


You can find the documentation, samples, and guides for using Spring Session on the Spring Session project site.
