Subject [5.0] Removing session recycling code
Date Mon, 07 Jul 2003 21:54:32 GMT

I'd like to completely remove session recycling code from TC 5, as it is 
a potentially dangerous feature (which has been disabled in TC 4.1.x) 
and does not bring any actual performance improvement while using memory.
The biggest impact of the change is the removal of the recycled array 
list for base manager, which can break existing TC 4 managers. OTOH, 
using that is unsafe, and fixing an affected manager is very easy (just 
remove whatever recylcling code was used).

I plan to keep Session.recycle around (nulling out references can help 
GC, esp since there could be a lot of session objects - with all their 
children - waiting to be GCed).

Comments ?
