WEBrick detect http client disconnect


#1

Hello all:

I’m working on a REST-like web service using WEBrick servlets
(HTTPServer and AbstractServet).

Does anybody know how the HTTPServer could detect when a client closes
their http session with the server. I would like for the web-server
to “clean up” data associated with the client automatically in the
event of a disconnect.

I’ve tried several methods already (GenericServer#{config,listeners,
et al} ) to no avail.

Thanks for your time,
Dave

Aren’t HTTP connections are supposed to be stateless?
