NAME

NetSDS::Session - memcached based session storage API

SYNOPSIS

        use NetSDS::Session;

        # Connecting to Memcached server
        my $sess = NetSDS::Session->new(
                host => '12.34.56.78',
                port => '12345',
        );

        ...

        # Retrieve session key somehow
        $session_key = $cgi->param('sess_key');

        $sess->open($session_key);

        my $filter = $sess->get('filter');
        ...
        $sess->set('filter', $new_filter);
        ...
        $sess->close();

DESCRIPTION

NetSDS::Session module provides API to session data storage based on Memcached server.

Each session represented as hash reference structure identified by UUID string. Most reasonable usage of this module is a temporary data storing for web based GUI between HTTP requests. However it's possible to find some other tasks.

Internally session structure is transformed to/from JSON string when interacting with Memcached.

CLASS API

new(%params) - class constructor

Constructor establish connection to memcached server and set default session parameters.

Parameters:

        * host - memcached server hostname or IP address (default: 127.0.0.1)
        * port - memcached server TCP port (default: 11211)

Example:

        my $sess_hdl = NetSDS::Session->new(
                host => '12.34.56.78',
                port => '99999',
        );
open($sess_id) - open session

Retrieve session data from server by session key (UUID string)

If no session exists then empty hashref is returned.

id() - get session id

Returns current session id.

Example:

        my $sess_id = $sess->id();
set($key, $value) - set session parameter

Set new session parameter value identified by it's key.

Example:

        $sess->set('order', 'id desc');
get($key) - get session parameter

Return session parameter value by it's key.

Example:

        my $order = $sess->get('order');
delete($key) - delete session parameter by key

Delete session parameter by it's key.

Returns updated session data as hash reference.

Example:

        $sess->delete('order');
clear() - clear session data

This method clears all session data.

Example:

        $sess->clear();
sync() - save session

Synchronize session data on Memcached server.

Example:

        $sess->sync();
close() - save and close session

This method save all data to server and clear current session id and data from object.

Example:

        $session->close();
