Now after playing with this for quite some time, it kinda
started to make sense.
I have a unique situation where I need to point the
application to different databases based on the user.
I use a remote object call over rtmp to authenticate my users
and then set a FlexSession variable to their specific db
I then want to be able to retrieve this attribute from within
my HibernateAssembler during Initialize().
What I've done so far: I had to nuke the <server>
section from my destination, change the scope to Session and then
roll my own version of the Assembler, since the one out of the box
is hardcoded to retrieve certain values from <server>
properties. My destinations have been renamed so they have the same
name as my hibernate entities - default behaviour - and I set
caching and allow-hql within the HibernateType class.
After I create the hibernate configuration in
HibernateAssembler.Initialize() I run this line:
connString.toString()); //connString = flexsession variable set on
Now this *appears* to work. However I am wondering whether or
not this approach of using FlexSession is going to be robust enough
in the long term. Also, I am wondering whether I am hitting a tack
with a sledgehammer here... perhaps there is a much simpler
solution? I would love to hear it!
