Accessing the session from the model


#1

Environment: jruby 1.7.18 with Rails 4.0.x

In order to use Rails in a way I’m more familiar (with a server-side
session store that integrates deeply with the model), I want to access
the servlet session from the Rails model. Now the typical integration
approach is this:

config/initializers/session_store.rb

if defined?($servlet_context)
require ‘action_controller/session/java_servlet_store’
ActionController::Base.session_store = :java_servlet_store end
end

But how can I get access to that store from the model without running
into threading issues? I’ve found some comments [1] but I’m not quite
sure of the threading approach inside jruby to understand how to access
the current user’s session from the model.

Thanks
Ari

… the session_store initializer will replace the underlying engine
behind
session Hash (wherever it is used from), you just keep using
session[:data] as usual

the underlying store is thread-safe but please note that it only works
under a servlet container (with JRuby-Rack), passenger links are not
really
useful here …

Any thoughts about how to get access to the session object from the
Rails model?
