Subject Re: How to clear PageMap in Wicket 1.5?
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2011 11:41:00 GMT
Hi Martin

Sorry for the delay, I was busy with other things recently.
Of course you're right, that clearing all pages, including the NextPage 
isn't a smart thing and I don't wanna do that anyway.
But what I need is away to redirect to a new (non-bookmarkable!) 
NextPage while clearing all other stored page instances.
I'll try to illustrate a flow; the user starts on the homepage  
HomePage. All pages are stateful:
HomePage <click on a link> AnotherPage <click on the special Link we're 
talking about> NextPage.
Now, when the user is on the NextPage of course all links on THAT page 
do have to work as expected. But all previous page instances (of 
HomePage and AnotherPage) must be cleared from the page store, so that 
if the user clicks BACK in his browser (and would go back to 
AnotherPage), a PageExpiredException must be thrown.
I can achieve that with Session.replaceSession() BEFORE calling 
setResponsePage(new NextPage()) - but this method has additional 
semantics (change the session ID) which I may not want to have.
That's why I came to


which *appears* to do what I want but due to the lack of knowledge of 
the session/pagestore internals I cannot say if it's correct or 
sufficient to do that...

So the important bit is, that when calling a usable  Session.clear(), 
the current page shall not be stored in the session/pagestore anymore...
