wiwo has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

hi y'all, I am trying to get Apache::Session::MySQL to work with the various perl "pages" of my site. I only want to build the tied session object in one place though and reference, mainly because it is 11 lines of identical code and also because I might need to change the database information one day.

Can anyone point me to an example where they have built the session hash in one package and referenced it in multiple pages?

When I do it, either the stuff I added to the session isn't available in the subsequent page, or the first page "locks" the session and the second page gets stuck trying to grab it, and never returns...

    Make a module and do everything there. There are some examples in the Apache::Session docs. You did read them didn't you. ;-) This code is untested of course, but you could use something like:
    package MySession; use strict; use Apache::Session::Whatever; sub new { my $self = bless( {}, shift }; $self->init(); return $self; } sub init { my $self = shift; my %session; tie %session, Apache::Session::Whatever, undef; $self->{session} = \%session; return $self->{session}; } sub get_session { my $self = shift; return $self->{session}; } sub close { my $self = shift; # Now properly untie the hash using the right method tied($self->{session})->close; untie($self->{session}); } sub DESTROY { my $self = shift; $self->close(); }
    Then in your app code just use the module and create a new object.
    use MySession; my $session = MySession->new()->get_session(); $session->{foo} = "bar"; $sesobj->close();
