NAME

Catalyst::Plugin::Session::Store::Jifty::DBI - Store your session with Jifty::DBI

SYNOPSIS

  # prepare a table like this.
  # note that we use "session_id" instead of simple "id",
  # as "id" is usually reserved as serial by Jifty::DBI
  # (which is configurable but changing this is not recommended).
  package MyApp::Schema::Session;
  use Jifty::DBI::Schema;
  use Jifty::DBI::Record schema {
    column session_id
      => type is 'char(72)', is mandatory, is distinct, is indexed;
    column session_data => type is 'text';
    column expires      => type is 'integer';
  };

  # and a model
  package MyApp::Model::DB;
  use base qw( Catalyst::Model::Jifty::DBI );
  __PACKAGE__->config->{schema_base} = 'MyApp::Schema';

  # and your app.
  MyApp->config('Plugin::Session' => {
    expires => 3600,
    moniker => 'DB::Session',
  });

  # then in an action
  $c->session->[foo} = 'bar'; # will be saved

DESCRIPTION

This storage module will store session data in a database using a Jifty::DBI model.

CONFIGURATION

These parameters are placed in the configuration hash under the session key.

expires

The expires column in your table will be set with the expiration value. Note that no automatic cleanup is done. You can use delete_expired_session method with Catalyst::Plugin::Scheduler, but most probably you may want to implement your own cleanup script with raw Jifty::DBI (or Catalyst::Model::Jifty::DBI) for speed and stability.

moniker

specify the moniker to access your session table (to get a session record) via $c->model(). This configuration is mandatory. If you dare, you also can set moniker_collection to specify the moniker to get a collection of session records (but you usually don't need this).

columns

by default, this module uses the column names shown above, but if you want to change some of these, you can give this a hash reference like this:

  MyApp->config('Plugin::Session' => {
    expires => 3600,
    moniker => 'DB::Session',
    columns => {
      id           => 'sid',
      session_data => 'body',
      expires      => 'until',
    },
  });

use_custom_serialization

If you want to use Jifty::DBI::Filters to serialize/deserialize session data, set this to true. This may be handy when you want to use other Jifty::DBI's features like validation.

METHODS

get_session_data

store_session_data

delete_session_data

delete_expired_sessions

setup_session

These are implementations of the required methods for a store. See Catalyst::Plugin::Session::Store.
