Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v2.1.1 Administration Reference


The following table describes attributes for the manager-properties element.

Table 1–123 manager-properties Attributes





none; state is not preserved across restarts 

(optional) Specifies the absolute or relative path to the directory in which the session state is preserved between application restarts, if preserving the state is possible. A relative path is relative to the temporary directory for this web application. Applicable to the web container only if the persistence-type attribute of the web-container-availability element is memory.



(optional) Specifies the time between checks for expired sessions. 

If the persistence-frequency attribute of the web-container-availability element is set to time-based, active sessions are stored at this interval.

Set this value lower than the frequency at which session data changes. For example, this value should be as low as possible (1 second) for a hit counter servlet on a frequently accessed web site, or you could lose the last few hits each time you restart the server.



(optional) Specifies the maximum number of sessions that can be in cache, or -1 for no limit. After this, an attempt to create a new session causes an IllegalStateException to be thrown.


internal class generator 

(optional) Not implemented. Use the uuid-impl-class property of the web-container-availability element instead.
