Umm.. someone can correct me if I'm wrong.  But I believe
things like sticky sessions and session replication have
nothing to do with Cocoon.  This all depends on the servlet
container you're using to serve up cocoon correct?

Also - at least from my experience with the terminology
"sticky" sessions.. this usually has to do with a load
balancer and sending requests to one particular machine.
I.e. user1 connects to the website on server2 and gets
a session.. from then on that session's requests are all
processed by the same server (server2) until the session

So - I may be wrong, but I think most of these requirements
that you have are probably not dependent on Cocoon itself
but your infrastructure and servlet container.

Well.. I dont think this should affect Cocoon anymore than
any other Servlet/JSP web development.
