       Apache::Session::Oracle - An implementation of Apache::Session


        use Apache::Session::Oracle;

        #if you want Apache::Session to open new DB handles:

        tie %hash, 'Apache::Session::Oracle', $id, {
           DataSource => 'dbi:Oracle:sessions',
           UserName   => $db_user,
           Password   => $db_pass,
           Commit     => 1

        #or, if your handles are already opened:

        tie %hash, 'Apache::Session::Oracle', $id, {
           Handle => $dbh,
           Commit => 1


       This module is an implementation of Apache::Session.  It uses the Oracle backing store and
       no locking.  See the example, and the documentation for Apache::Session::Store::Oracle for
       more details.


       The special Apache::Session argument for this module is Commit.  You MUST provide the
       Commit argument, which instructs this module to either commit the transaction when it is
       finished, or to simply do nothing.  This feature is provided so that this module will not
       have adverse interactions with your local transaction policy, nor your local database
       handle caching policy.  The argument is mandatory in order to make you think about this

       This module also respects the LongReadLen argument, which specifies the maximum size of
       the session object.  If not specified, the default maximum is 8 KB.


       This module was written by Jeffrey William Baker <>.
