FAQ
In a RESTful application I'm working I'd like to be able to load a session based on the sessionid which is sent with the HTTP headers. The application will, at a later stadium, get a webinterface as well so I'd still like to use cookies, except for the RESTful part I want to be able to choose.

What would be the best approach on this problem. Write a Catalyst::Plugin:Session::State based module? If so, some pointers on doing so would be nice. I'm not very familiar with Catalyst and Moose, so I'm struggling a bit on this part.

Thanks,

Christiaan

    It seems it's already possible with the Catalyst::Plugin::Session::State Cookie andd URI modules.

    The howto on the Catalyst WiKi helped me out.

    So problem solved.

    It's perfectly arguable that you just failed at REST.

    Do HTTP auth (Catalyst::Authentication::Credential::HTTP) in the
    RESTful part, and use standard password & cookies for the non-restful
    part.

    You just configure 2 different realms in your authentication config,
    and call $c->authenticate with a realm parameter..

    Thanks for the link and preventing me from some big mistakes in the
    beginning of my application. Not using sessions makes a lot more sense
    indeed.

    Will do! This will actually make things easier.
