Subject [jira] Commented: (MYFACES-543) Problems handling simultaneous request from the same session
Date Fri, 09 Sep 2005 14:18:34 GMT

Mike Kienenberger commented on MYFACES-543:

I had the same issue in Struts.   Like you suggested above, I syncronized struts so that only
one HttpSession could run at a time.

I think this is a good design practice in general, but I don't know how it'll end up affecting
AJAX components.

If nothing else, I'd love to see this as a configurable option for MyFaces.   Otherwise, any
session-scoped data access has to be syncronized or thread-safe.

requests) it will lead to concurrent access problems.
