Subject [jira] [Commented] (MYFACES-3804) Use the same key in server side state saving for ajax requests
Date Tue, 05 Nov 2013 16:24:19 GMT


Mike Kienenberger commented on MYFACES-3804:


We need to move discussion to the developer mailing list, and reserve the JIRA for resolving
There are a number of reasons why the JIRA issue is not the best place for discussion, which
I wrote about here:

I'm sorry that I didn't speak up a while back when I first noticed it happening, but we need
to resume using the developer mailing list for its intended purpose.

> The current code for server side state saving creates one key per request to store the
view state. This is ok, but it is not necessary for ajax requests. 
> The reason why is not necessary is because you can never go back to a page when using
ajax. If you are on page A and the current request is an ajax request and it returns to the
same page and the view is the same that the one that has been restored, the key or the token
sent does not need to change, what changes is the internal state of the view. From the client
side the page is the same. We can take advantage of this fact and just update the state stored
in SerializedViewCollection for the view. 
> The challenge here is detect when this strategy is applicable. For example, what happen
if there is an ajax redirect? It looks is a good idea for implement in 2.2, because it avoids
to store unnecessary information into session and optimize the use of each view slot.
