Coordinating Session Access

Make sure that multiple threads don’t simultaneously modify the same session object in conflicting ways. If the persistence type is ha (see The ha Persistence Type), the following message in the log file indicates that this might be happening:

Primary Key Constraint violation while saving session session_id

This is especially likely to occur in web applications that use HTML frames where multiple servlets are executing simultaneously on behalf of the same client. A good solution is to ensure that one of the servlets modifies the session and the others have read-only access.
