Subject Re: session.logout throws Exception : Inactive logical session handle called
Date Fri, 13 Aug 2010 11:08:18 GMT

first: Yes, when a session handle is closed, the underlying connection 
stays alive and is returned to the pool (I'm not a Jackrabbit developer, 
but all of my tests show exactly that + there hasn't been any 
contradiction on this mailing-list yet :)).
Second: Good questions and I'm, too, struggling with the answers for my 
own application. However, what I can say is (again, not a developer, but 
tests and no contradictions), that you do not have to call 
session.logout if the bindSessionToTransaction-flag is set to true and 
all of your methods are executed within a container or bean managed 
transaction. So no memory leak there (of course, you have to call 
session.logout if there is no transaction around). And if all of your 
session bean methods do have a TransactionAttribute of "required" (which 
is the default), then bindSessionToTransaction = true is basically the 
same as calling session.login and session.logout in every method.
I don't know the best way to take yet, either.
Currently I also added the flag <application-managed-security/> to my 
jcr-ds.xml so that the sessions in the pool are distinguished by the 
repository.login-credentials (as far as I know, now user x never uses a 
session user y has used before). Furthermore I have the 
bindSessionToTransaction-flag set to true, so theoretically I shouln't 
have to worry much about handling and logging out the sessions. As you 
can see in another eMail on this list ("Jackrabbit, JCA, JBoss, EJB and 
transactions"), I have a problem with that configuration, though.
You can find some more configurable flags for your jcr-ds.xml e.g. on 
[1] (at least those flags seem to work for the JBoss implementation of 
the JCA).

Best regards
