Apache::Session::Lock::File - Provides mutual exclusion using flock SYNOPSIS
use Apache::Session::Lock::File; my $locker = new Apache::Session::Lock::File; $locker->acquire_read_lock($ref); $locker->acquire_write_lock($ref); $locker->release_read_lock($ref); $locker->release_write_lock($ref); $locker->release_all_locks($ref); $locker->clean($dir, $age); DESCRIPTION
Apache::Session::Lock::File fulfills the locking interface of Apache::Session. Mutual exclusion is achieved through the use of temporary files and the "flock" function. CONFIGURATION
The module must know where to create its temporary files. You must pass an argument in the usual Apache::Session style. The name of the argument is LockDirectory and its value is the path where you want the lockfiles created. Example: tie %s, 'Apache::Session::Blah', $id, {LockDirectory => '/var/lock/sessions'} If you do not supply this argument, temporary files will be created in /tmp. NOTES
clean This module does not unlink temporary files, because it interferes with proper locking. This can cause problems on certain systems (Linux) whose file systems (ext2) do not perform well with lots of files in one directory. To prevent this you should use a script to clean out old files from your lock directory. The meaning of old is left as a policy decision for the implementor, but a method is provided for implementing that policy. You can use the "clean" method of this module to remove files unmodified in the last $age seconds. Example: my $l = new Apache::Session::Lock::File; $l->clean('/var/lock/sessions', 3600) #remove files older than 1 hour acquire_read_lock Will do nothing if write lock is in effect, only set readlock flag to true. release_read_lock Will do nothing if write lock is in effect, only set readlock flag to false. Win32 and Cygwin Windows cannot escalate lock, so all locks will be exclusive. release_read_lock not supported - it is not used by Apache::Session. When deleting files, they are not locked (Win32 only). AUTHOR

Apache::Session::Store::Oracle - Store persistent data in a Oracle database SYNOPSIS
use Apache::Session::Store::Oracle; my $store = new Apache::Session::Store::Oracle; $store->insert($ref); $store->update($ref); $store->materialize($ref); $store->remove($ref); DESCRIPTION
Apache::Session::Store::Oracle fulfills the storage interface of Apache::Session. Session data is stored in a Oracle database. SCHEMA
To use this module, you will need at least these columns in a table called 'sessions': id varchar2(32) # or however long your session IDs are. a_session long To create this schema, you can execute this command using the sqlplus program: CREATE TABLE sessions ( id varchar2(32) not null primary key, a_session long ); If you use some other command, ensure that there is a unique index on the table's id column. CONFIGURATION
The module must know what datasource, username, and password to use when connecting to the database. These values can be set using the options hash (see Apache::Session documentation). The options are DataSource, UserName, and Password. Example: tie %hash, 'Apache::Session::Oracle', $id, { DataSource => 'dbi:Oracle:database', UserName => 'database_user', Password => 'K00l' }; Instead, you may pass in an already-opened DBI handle to your database. tie %hash, 'Apache::Session::Oracle', $id, { Handle => $dbh }; The last option is LongReadLen, which specifies the maximum size of the session object. If not supplied, the default maximum size is 8 KB. AUTHOR
