Redis is a high-performance No-Sql database which is commonly used for key-value storage, caching, ... Redis has a lot of interesting features such as transactions and publish/subscribe.
The Jetty module jetty-session-redis uses Jedis, the Java client of Redis.
The configuration is completely transparent for a Webapp since you only need to modify the jetty.xml server configuration plus de webapp context files.
We have also implemented several serializers for your session attributes:
- JBoss Serializer
- JDK Serializer
The project can be found at https://github.com/Ovea/jetty-session-redis, with an extensive README file to help you for the setup. It is currently in snapshot state (we plan to release a beta soon). All comments and bugs are welcomed !
We also plan to implement for higher performance an asynchronous save system and support Redis key/value based on bytes to improve performance.
