My use case is redeployment of the Jetspeed web application.
If you have a server running in production, and you want to redeploy, how do
you do so without losing the session state of logged on users.

>From the Tomcat 4.1 Manager, I can shutdown a simple test app that I wrote
that stores a few objects in the session, restart Tomcat, and it restores
the session state.

I just discovered that redeploying Jetspeed doesn't work at all with
Hypersonic, not that it matters to me but it may be an issue for some users.
