HTTP invoker and sticky session
I have bunch of web servers exposing some funcitonality for remote clients via Spring Remoting(the default, HTTP invoker kind). They are behind a hardware load balancer. Everything works great.
Now, I have a requirement to see if I can provide session affinity of sort, so the subsequent requests will be processed by the same box which served the "first" request.
What are my options?

Why do you need sticky sessions with web services? You should try to leverage your client-side to store its own session state, so you get better horizontal scalability on the cluster. Usually your hardware load balancer - like a Cisco Load Director - can support sticky sessions for you.
