NAME

       Plack::Middleware::Session - Middleware for session management

SYNOPSIS

         use Plack::Builder;

         my $app = sub {
             my $env = shift;
             my $session = $env->{'psgix.session'};
             return [
                 200,
                 [ 'Content-Type' => 'text/plain' ],
                 [ "Hello, you've been here for ", $session->{counter}++, "th time!" ],
             ];
         };

         builder {
             enable 'Session';
             $app;
         };

         # Or, use the File store backend (great if you use multiprocess server)
         # For more options, see perldoc Plack::Session::Store::File
         builder {
             enable 'Session', store => 'File';
             $app;
         };

DESCRIPTION

       This is a Plack Middleware component for session management. By default it will use
       cookies to keep session state and store data in memory. This distribution also comes with
       other state and store solutions. See perldoc for these backends how to use them.

       It should be noted that we store the current session as a hash reference in the
       "psgix.session" key inside the $env where you can access it as needed.

       NOTE: As of version 0.04 the session is stored in "psgix.session" instead of
       "plack.session".

   State
       Plack::Session::State
           This will maintain session state by passing the session through the request params. It
           does not do this automatically though, you are responsible for passing the session
           param.

       Plack::Session::State::Cookie
           This will maintain session state using browser cookies.

   Store
       Plack::Session::Store
           This is your basic in-memory session data store. It is volatile storage and not
           recommended for multiprocessing environments. However it is very useful for
           development and testing.

       Plack::Session::Store::File
           This will persist session data in a file. By default it uses Storable but it can be
           configured to have a custom serializer and deserializer.

       Plack::Session::Store::Cache
           This will persist session data using the Cache interface.

       Plack::Session::Store::Null
           Sometimes you don't care about storing session data, in that case you can use this
           noop module.

OPTIONS

       The following are options that can be passed to this module.

       state
           This is expected to be an instance of Plack::Session::State or an object that
           implements the same interface. If no option is provided the default
           Plack::Session::State::Cookie will be used.

       store
           This is expected to be an instance of Plack::Session::Store or an object that
           implements the same interface. If no option is provided the default
           Plack::Session::Store will be used.

           It should be noted that this default is an in-memory volatile store is only suitable
           for development (or single process servers). For a more robust solution see
           Plack::Session::Store::File or Plack::Session::Store::Cache.

PLACK REQUEST OPTIONS

       In addition to providing a "psgix.session" key in $env for persistent session information,
       this module also provides a "psgix.session.options" key which can be used to control the
       behavior of the module per-request.  The following sub-keys exist:

       change_id
           If set to a true value, forces the session identifier to change (rotate).  This should
           always be done after logging in, to prevent session fixation attacks from subdomains;
           see
           <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Session_fixation#Attacks_using_cross-subdomain_cooking>

       expire
           If set to a true value, expunges the session from the store, and clears the state in
           the client.

       no_store
           If set to a true value, no changes made to the session in this request will be saved
           to the store.  Either "expire" and "change_id" take precedence over this, as both need
           to update the session store.

       late_store
           If set to a true value, the session will be saved at the end of the request, after all
           data has been sent to the client -- this may be required if streaming responses
           attempt to alter the session after the header has already been sent to the client.
           Note, however, that it introduces a possible race condition, where the server attempts
           to store the updated session before the client makes the next request.  For redirects,
           or other responses on which the client needs do minimal processing before making a
           second request, this race is quite possible to win -- causing the second request to
           obtain stale session data.

       id  This key contains the session identifier of the session.  It should be considered
           read-only; to generate a new identifier, use "change_id".

BUGS

       All complex software has bugs lurking in it, and this module is no exception. If you find
