Subject [jira] [Commented] (TAP5-411) A persistence strategy to provide page specific state
Date Fri, 12 Aug 2011 11:12:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-411?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13084047#comment-13084047

Massimo Lusetti commented on TAP5-411:

There's been a lot of work in the session handling recently with new session attrbitue and
so on, this is old and could be outdated.

I would like to close this... please comment

> Perhaps the most commonly reoccurring  persistence pattern is 'per page', as opposed
to session wide, or per request. Tapestry provides persistence strategies for the later of
these, but there is no strategy that mirrors a pages 'implied' life-cycle. 
> @Persist
> Persists a value for a page for the duration of a session: best used on primitives, a
disadvantage is that its open for abuse by incorrect use which will clutter the session and
increase its size thereby reducing scalability.
> @Persist("flash")
> A persisted object is removed after a post: - Not suited to all use cases that require
'page specific' persistence... render methods can sometimes prevent using flash persistence.
> Currently the most scalable pattern for simulating page state is using onActivate with
onPassivate, and re-instantiating objects required for the page, generally from their identifiers.
> It requires more boilerplate code for checking that URL parameters are passed correctly,
particularly for pages that have 'optional parameters'... the downside is more queries and
having to use identifiers in URL parameters.
> @Persist("conversation")
> Seam provides this type of strategy, conversations provide a generally better persistence
context, persistence is associated to a single window / tab, for which it retains state information
between data requests/posts etc (whereas its relatives, which are other windows or tabs will
be independent to the 'conversation') . Conversational state has been discussed in the past
for Tapestry.
> @Persist("?")
> The proposed strategy is along the same lines as conversational state, but persisted
values are retained for all instances of that page (regardless of tabs or windows, meaning
in practice that all active instances of that page share an identifier), so closing all instances
would remove associated persisted values.
