Session Service

The Session Service enables applications to do the following:

  • create a session context. A session context is a control structure that maintains state information within a bound session, facilitating resource management and context passing.

  • bind objects to a session context.

  • use the session context as a convenience container for passing multiple contexts.

  • use the session context as a convenience container for passing other services, such as User Services and Logging Services.

  • notify bound objects when they are removed from the session context or when the session context is destroyed, so that objects can perform any necessary cleanup.

For detailed usage documentation and examples, see in the Foundation Services class documentation.

For information about configuring a Session Service, see Modifying the Session and User Service Configurations in the SAS Integration Technologies: Administrator's Guide.
