We are working on a web based application using Springs .
This application will be handling request using load balancing servers .
Due to some issues in load balancing servers for request , the client does not want to use anything in Springs kept in session scope or Application Context scope.
Now we are trying to use Form Based Authentication and Authorization in springs .
But looking out the examples based on spring authentication it seems that spring security context executes in session scope
We want to implement form based authentication in springs without a session scope .
The sample code in security file (Security using database) will be something like this :-
Hence, I want to know, is there any way to implement spring form base authentication and authorization without session scope ... maybe request scope or cookies ?
Any pointer or help in this regard will be very helpful as this is now major blocker for our app
wait a minute..so your load balancer config is such that user can flip flop between load balancers at every hit? In that case, how do load balancers sync with each other? Do you want to send the cookie around every time?
In our case, once user sticks to one load balancer he is served until there is no session left for that user. He does not switch from one to another.
Cookies and request scope is the only other way I see this working but I feel that is overkill for your app...unless it is high security tool
