Dancer::Core::Role::SessionFactory - Role for session factories
Any class that consumes this role will be able to store, create, retrieve and destroy session objects.
The name of the cookie to create for storing the session key
The domain of the cookie to create for storing the session key. Defaults to the empty string and is unused as a result.
The path of the cookie to create for storing the session key. Defaults to "/".
Default duration before session cookie expiration.
expires attribute will be set to the current time plus this duration.
Boolean flag to tell if the session cookie is secure or not.
Default is false.
Boolean flag to tell if the session cookie is http only.
Default is true.
Following is the interface provided by this role. When specified the required methods to implement are described.
Create a brand new session object and store it. Returns the newly created session object.
Triggers an exception if the session is unable to be created.
my $session = MySessionFactory->create();
This method does not need to be implemented in the class.
Returns a randomly-generated, guaranteed-unique string. (It is not guaranteed cryptographically secure, but it's still reasonably strong for general use.) This method is used internally by create() to set the session ID.
This method does not need to be implemented in the class unless an alternative method for session ID generation is desired.
Return the session object corresponding to the session ID given. If none is found, triggers an exception.
my $session = MySessionFactory->retrieve(id => $id);
_retrieve must be implemented. It must take
$id as a single argument and must return a hash reference of session data.
Purges the session object that matches the ID given. Returns the ID of the destroyed session if succeeded, triggers an exception otherwise.
MySessionFactory->destroy(id => $id);
_destroy method must be implemented. It must take
$id as a single argumenet and destroy the underlying data.
Make sure the session object is stored in the factory's backend. This method is called to notify the backend about the change in the session object.
An exception is triggered if the session is unable to be updated in the backend.
MySessionFactory->flush(session => $session);
_flush method must be implemented. It must take two arguments: the
$id and a hash reference of session data.
Coerce a session object into a Dancer::Core::Cookie object.
MySessionFactory->cookie(session => $session);
Return a list of all session IDs stored in the backend. Useful to create cleaning scripts, in conjunction with session's creation time.
_sessions method must be implemented. It must return an array reference of session IDs (or an empty array reference).
