Catalyst::Plugin::Session::State(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation Catalyst::Plugin::Session::State(3pm)


Catalyst::Plugin::Session::State - Base class for session state preservation plugins.


    package Catalyst::Plugin::Session::State::MyBackend;
    use base qw/Catalyst::Plugin::Session::State/;


This class doesn't actually provide any functionality, but when the "Catalyst::Plugin::Session" module sets up it will check to see that "YourApp->isa("Catalyst::Plugin::Session::State")".

When you write a session state plugin you should subclass this module this reason only.


To write a session state plugin you usually need to extend two methods:

Set "sessionid" (accessor) at prepare time using data in the request.

Note that this must happen before other "prepare_action" instances, in order to get along with Catalyst::Plugin::Session. Overriding "prepare_cookies" is probably the stablest approach.

Modify the response at to include the session ID if "sessionid" is defined, using whatever scheme you use. For example, set a cookie.
