Default Session Values

Hi

I am wondering if it is possible to have default session values set please? I have come across a post stating to add a before filter to the ApplicationController, however this seems a bit inefficient to me. I am looking for a more specific place to load up session variables where they will only be loaded once.

Thanks

Why set them at all? you could define methods such as

def session_feature_x
  session[:x] || 'default'
end
