The interaction between sessions, conflicts, and persistence is a bit
confusing. I am still trying to understand the code in depth.
One thing is for sure, request.SESSION and/or request['SESSION']
persistent for things to work. Mutable objects in the session
set (dictionaries and lists) have to be handled specially to get the
persistence machinery to recognize they have been changed.
In this case, I am trying to ensure that the session variables get
identified as persistent. My question is whether using update (an
implicit assignment) triggers the persistence mechanism. It is the
moral equivalent of writing
request['SESSION']['alpha'] = 'a'B
request['SESSION']['beta'] = 'b'
but I am unsure whether the persistence mechanism will recognize it as
The implementation of TransientObjects's update method is:
def update(self, d):
self._p_changed = 1
for k in d.keys():
self[k] = d[k]
