Session Management using 2 Tomcats

A question from a newbie trying to get his head around some issues.

We are using a tomcat fail over configuration with two Tomcat servers. In the interests of using this effectively we are capturing session information and "carrying" it with the user through the application.

In the next application the process will involve the capture of parameters in forms and the submission of these as well.

Can anyone give some advice on ways of managing the parameters when we need to keep session information as well in the interests of using multiple tomcats for fail over

Have you read this page from the Tomcat documentation?

Thanks Ben,

I had looked at the document but confess I was kind of hoping for some suggestions on the best way to manage it from experience.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
