Subject ThreadLocal and NIO
Date Sat, 04 Sep 2010 08:16:40 GMT

Currently we use a filter and log4j's NDC to store details of the request
such as our identifier for the user and their Ip address. We then have a log
pattern which puts these details in the log. This way if we have any errors
we can easily associate them back to the origional request.  This works very
well. Currently we are using 6.0.18.

However, If I understand it correctly. If we change to use NIO for the
connectors it isn't thread per request any longer so setting something into
log4j's NDC which uses ThreadLocal may not associate the variable with the
actual request.  Is this correct? If it is is there any way I can
consistantly append the details of the session with the current activity
such as running a SQL query. I'm not keen on passing the session details
through every call on our system.
