REST JSON - unable to use with load balancer
When using REST/JSON, first we Authenticate using j_security_check. Then we Retrieve security token using restSecurityToken. From that point onwards, we can use the same token for subsequent requests.
However, this becomes a problem when a load balancer is used.
for REST calls, it goes via a separate servlet that isn't completely stateless.
As described earlier, when we want to make a rest call, we first need to authenticate, then retrieve a token. Once we have done this, the same token can be used for subsequent requests. But in a LB setup, we have more than one
application server. Each application server will provide a different token.How do we know which token to use when the App Server is determined by the LB.
