Re: [jetty-users] Enabling Session


ServletContextHandler already implements session support, so it would be the easiest route. All the methods of the Request object that you could possibly need in a servlet are available through javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest interface. To get the target of a request for example, you would call request.getRequestURI().

In the handle() method of a ContextHandler you get two different references to possibly the same object. The request parameter references it through the interface that it implements, and potentially it could pass a wrapped request object. Whereas baseRequest parameter is needed to obtain the original request object while performing internal processing inside the core handlers.

If you still want to use a handler and need session support, you would have to implement your handler, instantiate org.eclipse.jetty.server.SessionHandler (that implements HandlerWrapper interface) and chain it with your handler as follows.

MyHandler myHandler = new MyHandler();

SessionHandler sessionHandler = new SessionHandler();

But with servlethandler, my servlet signature is

protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException

With ContexHandler, my handler signature is

public void handle(String target, Request baseRequest, HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws IOException, ServletException
I don't have 'target' and baseRequest arguments using servlets.. is there some workaround in order to use servlets and still
get baseRequest and target?

best regards.

Below are the examples of embedded ServletContextHandler usage you may find useful.

Hello everyone,

I'm starting a new project with jetty and after reading jetty documentation I picked ContextHandler to implement what I need.

My question is: is there someway to have Session and Cookies suport (with HashSessionManager for example) together with ContextHandler?

I know that ServletContextHandler will give me Session suppor but my code does not work.

        Server server = new Server(8080);

        ServletContextHandler context = new ServletContextHandler(server,"/",ServletContextHandler.SESSIONS);
        context.setHandler(new Adapter(BasicApp.class)); // Adapter extends AbstractHandler

Can anyone help me?
