ActiveCache can use Coherence*Web to provide HTTP session state persistence and management. Coherence*Web is a session management module that uses Coherence for storing and managing session data. Built on top of Oracle Coherence, Coherence*Web:
brings Coherence data grid's data scalability, availability, reliability, and performance to in-memory session management and storage.
allows session sharing and management across Web applications, domains, and heterogeneous application servers.
allows storage of session data outside of the Java EE application server, freeing application server heap space and enabling server restarts without session data loss.
supports multiple advanced session models (that is, Monolithic, Traditional, and Split Session) which define how the session state is serialized/deserialized in the cluster.
supports fine-grained session and session attribute scoping by way of pluggable policies.
For information on using Coherence*Web with WebLogic Server applications, see the User's Guide for Oracle Coherence*Web.
