Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRMINA-42) SessionManagers should manage list of sessions being managed.

Ryan Rhodes commented on DIRMINA-42:

Speaking for my application, I think MINA needs a Map but that it doesn't need an application
specific key.

I would like to use MINA to build a MUD server, which is basically an extended chat server
that exists in a coordinate space.  I implemented a simple chat server with MINA for experimenting.

Imagine a user shouts, and you want that to write output to every other user's session, but
you don't want it to write output to users that are executing a character creation workflow
and are not actually in the game yet.  Image a user says something that should only be output
to the users that are standing in the room with him.

I'm thinking that all the contexts that a user's commands will execute under will be game
specific contexts that have their own lists of users associated with them, like a room or
a set of rooms.  An executing command will navigate the object model from the point of the
user it is executing under to some collection of users that it wants to write output to.

In my case these collections will be the result of database queries so I think what I actually
need is just to be able to store a handle to a session in the database along with the users
object, so that when I need to output to a set of users, I can fetch the session that goes
with the user data in the result of my query.  Since there isn't any data associated with
the handle I don't think there are any database specific issues related to the key.

be much better if MINA can handle this.
