Spring Session provides an API and implementations for managing a user’s session information.

Features

Spring Session makes it trivial to support clustered sessions without being tied to an application container specific solution. It also provides transparent integration with:

  • HttpSession - allows replacing the HttpSession in an application container (i.e. Tomcat) neutral way, with support for providing session IDs in headers to work with RESTful APIs

  • WebSocket - provides the ability to keep the HttpSession alive when receiving WebSocket messages

  • WebSession - allows replacing the Spring WebFlux’s WebSession in an application container neutral way

Modules

Spring Session consists of the following modules:

  • Spring Session Core - provides core Spring Session functionalities and APIs

  • Spring Session Data Redis - provides SessionRepository and ReactiveSessionRepository implementation backed by Redis and configuration support

  • Spring Session JDBC - provides SessionRepository implementation backed by a relational database and configuration support

  • Spring Session Hazelcast - provides SessionRepository implementation backed by Hazelcast and configuration support

Quick start

Bootstrap your application with Spring Initializr.
