Class SessionHelper

java.lang.Object

      extended by com.tangosol.coherence.servlet.SessionHelper

public class SessionHelper
extends Base

A collection of methods that support the implementation of Coherence web container components used to replace the corresponding implementations provided by the application server vendor.

Must NOT be serializable just in case the application server implements clustering on the ServletContext level (because the session helper will be stored in the app server's ServletContext).

isUseDefaultSessionIdEncoding

public boolean isUseDefaultSessionIdEncoding()
Determine if the session ID encoding (into a URL) performed by the application server's response object is sufficient. This will be false for all known cases, since the container has no way of knowing the session ID of the custom session implementation.

Returns:
true to use the app server to URL encode the session ID; false to use the custom implementation to encode it

decodeUrl

public java.lang.String decodeUrl(javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest request)
Decodes the session ID from the URL represented by the passed request.

Parameters:
request - the current HttpServletRequest
Returns:
the session id if there were one encoded in the URL, otherwise null

encodeUrl

public java.lang.String encodeUrl(java.lang.String sUrl,
                                  javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest request)
Encodes the specified URL by including the session ID in it, or, if encoding is not needed, returns the URL unchanged. The implementation of this method includes the logic to determine whether the session ID needs to be encoded in the URL. For example, if the browser supports cookies, or session tracking is turned off, URL encoding is unnecessary.

Parameters:
sUrl - the URL to be encoded
request - the current HttpServletRequest
Returns:
the encoded URL if encoding is needed; the unchanged URL otherwise

encodeUrl

protected java.lang.String encodeUrl(java.lang.String sUrl,
                                     java.lang.String sId)
Encodes the specified URL by including the given session ID in it.

Parameters:
sUrl - the URL to be encoded
sId - the session ID to encode in the URL
Returns:
the encoded URL

enterSession

public void enterSession(java.lang.String sId)
Obtain any necessary ownership for the specified session.

If the session specified by the session ID does not exist, then this method has no effect; no exception is thrown.

Parameters:
sId - the session id

exitSession

public void exitSession(java.lang.String sId,
                        boolean fNew)
Release ownership for the specified session. This method must be called exactly once for each call to enterSession(sId), with the only exceptions being:

If the session specified by the session ID does not exist, then this method has no effect; no exception is thrown.

Parameters:
sId - the session id
fNew - true if the session was just created

requestAsyncOwnership

public void requestAsyncOwnership(java.lang.String sId)
Enter (obtain) and schedule an asynchronous call to exit (release) the specified session ID.

Parameters:
sId - the session ID to async enter and exit

shutdownHttpSessionCollection

public void shutdownHttpSessionCollection()
Shutdown the http session collection.


toString

public java.lang.String toString()
Returns a string representation of the object.

Returns:
a string representation of the object

getConfigurationCache

public NamedCache getConfigurationCache()
Get the NamedCache used to store configuration and management information for the session management implementation.

Returns:
the clustered cache used to store configuration and management information

ensureConfigurationCache

protected NamedCache ensureConfigurationCache()
Get the NamedCache used to store configuration and management information for the session management implementation if it exists, otherwise create it.

Returns:
the clustered cache used to store configuration and management information

shutdownConfigurationCache

protected void shutdownConfigurationCache()
Shutdown the NamedCache used to store configuration and management information for the session management implementation.


getDescription

protected java.lang.String getDescription()
Returns a string representation of this object's attributes.

Returns:
a string representation of this object's attributes

getFactory

public SessionHelper.Factory getFactory()
Determine the factory to use to instantiate container-specific implementations of the Servlet specification interfaces.

Returns:
the factory used by the session helper

instantiateSessionReaperDaemon

protected SessionHelper.SessionReaperDaemon instantiateSessionReaperDaemon()
Factory method: Instantiate a daemon thread that will clean up expired sessions.


getSessionReaperDaemon

protected SessionHelper.SessionReaperDaemon getSessionReaperDaemon()
Get the daemon thread that cleans up expired sessions.

Returns:
the session reaper daemon, if it exists, otherwise null

getDaemonPriority

protected int getDaemonPriority()
Determine the configured priority for the session reaper daemon.

Returns:
the configured priority of the session reaper daemon

getDaemonCycleMillis

protected long getDaemonCycleMillis()
Determine the number of milliseconds per reap cycle. This means that a new cycle will not start until this many milliseconds has passed since the previous cycle started.

Returns:
the number of milliseconds per reap cycle

getDaemonCheckCollectionModulo

protected int getDaemonCheckCollectionModulo()
Determine how many times the daemon will perform its check before checking the session models that the collection considers "local".

Returns:
the modulo on which the daemon will check the session models that the collection considers "local"

isDaemonCheckCoordinated

protected boolean isDaemonCheckCoordinated()
Determine if the reaper daemon coordinates the check across the cluster instead of just doing its own "local" scan.

Returns:
true if the daemon coordinates a global scan with other nodes in the cluster

isDaemonAssumeLocality

protected boolean isDaemonAssumeLocality()
Determine if the reaper daemon assumes that session data is stored only on nodes that are running the session reaper daemon thread.

Returns:
true if the daemon can assume that all cluster nodes that store sessions are also running a reaper daemon

checkForDeadSessions

protected void checkForDeadSessions()
Discard the HttpSession objects that are no longer alive.


checkExpiredSessionId

protected void checkExpiredSessionId(java.lang.String sId)
Check the specified session to see if it has expired.

Parameters:
sId - a session id

killSession

public void killSession(java.lang.String sId)
Forcibly destroy a session. Use HttpSession invalidate method instead; this is only a last-ditch attempt to get rid of the session model when nothing else works.

Parameters:
sId - the session ID to destroy

shutdownSessionReaperDaemon

public void shutdownSessionReaperDaemon()
Stop the daemon thread that is used for expiring sessions.


instantiateSessionWorkerDaemon

protected TaskDaemon instantiateSessionWorkerDaemon()
Factory method: Instantiate a daemon thread that will be used for scheduled tasks.

Get the daemon thread that is used for scheduled tasks.

Returns:
the session worker daemon, or null if it does not exist

setSessionWorkerDaemon

the session worker daemon

shutdownSessionWorkerDaemon

public void shutdownSessionWorkerDaemon()
Stop the daemon thread that is used for scheduled tasks.
