public interface Manager

A Manager manages the pool of Sessions that are associated with a particular Container. Different Manager implementations may support value-added features such as the persistent storage of session data, as well as migrating sessions for distributable web applications.

In order for a Manager implementation to successfully operate with a Context implementation that implements reloading, it must obey the following constraints:

createSession

Session createSession()
Deprecated. 

Construct and return a new session object, based on the default settings specified by this Manager's properties. The session id will be assigned by this method, and available via the getId() method of the returned session. If a new session cannot be created for any reason, return null.

Throws:
java.lang.IllegalStateException - if a new session cannot be instantiated for any reason

createSession

Session createSession(java.lang.String sessionId)
Construct and return a new session object, based on the default settings specified by this Manager's properties. The session id specified will be used as the session id. If a new session cannot be created for any reason, return null.

Parameters:

Throws:
java.lang.IllegalStateException - if a new session cannot be instantiated for any reason

Throws:
java.lang.IllegalStateException - if a new session cannot be instantiated for any reason

Session[] findSessions()
Return the set of active Sessions associated with this Manager. If this Manager has no active Sessions, a zero-length array is returned.

          throws java.lang.ClassNotFoundException,
                 java.io.IOException
Load any currently active sessions that were previously unloaded to the appropriate persistence mechanism, if any. If persistence is not supported, this method returns without doing anything.

Throws:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException - if a serialized class cannot be found during the reload

remove

void remove(Session session)
Remove this Session from the active Sessions for this Manager.
