Tomcat's Session Replicator

A component in Tomcat which is responsible for session replication in a clustered, distributable web application, to implement session-failover.

Configuration for the replication is server.xml.

The replicator uses multicast to manage membership in the cluster.

TCP connections are formed between the cluster members to transmit session information.

To be included in the replication, an application must be marked as distributable using the <distributable> element in web.xml.
