I thought it would be nice if my login code handled session and cookie
management in a Session class, rather than explicitly in the controller.
So I made the session class attach itself to the current session:
def self.get(session, cookiejar)
session[:hark_session] ||= self.new(cookiejar)
@cookiejar = cookiejar
Then I call it from my login action:
class HarkController < ApplicationController
hs = Hark::Session.get(session, cookies)
This works beautifully in unit tests, but when I try to run it in webrick,
I get an error when it tries to serialize the session; apparently, the
CookieJar contains an anonymous class.
Is there some way I can allow my session class to get/set cookies without
passing it the CookieJar each time? On the face of it, I'd need to store a
"pointer" to the CookieJar# and CookieJar#= functions, without storing
the cookiejar itself. But that's not very Rubyish. Ideas?
