public interface Manager
A Manager manages the pool of Sessions that are associated with a particular Context. 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:

  • Must implement Lifecycle so that the Context can indicate that a restart is required.
  • Must allow a call to stop() to be followed by a call to start() on the same Manager instance.
