Interface Session

All Known Implementing Classes:
ApplicationModuleImpl, SessionImpl, WSApplicationModuleImpl

public interface Session

An interface for session context objects. A session context represents an application's session. An implementation of this interface is instantiated for each root application module when the application module is activated ApplicationModule.activate. The session object is garbage collected when the root application module is garbage collected.

This interface is used by the framework to load/store session context throughout the client application's lifetime.

A default implementation of this interface, SessionImpl is provided with the Business Components for Java framework. Custom implementations may be developed by application developers who are interested in extending the default implementation. For example, an application may extend the init method with logic to load application specific session context like the local currency.

Custom implementations of this interface may be identified to the framework with the SessionClass server property.

Since:
JDeveloper 3.0
