Sinatra sessions not maintained across requests

Reported by Erik Pukinskis | April 17th, 2009 @ 01:58 PM

If you send multiple requests to a Sinatra app, the session hash is destroyed each time. I've got a little test app demonstrating this here:


I did some investigation, and webrat is passing (path, params, headers) to the request methods of Sinatra's test harness, but according to the Sinatra docs[1], the request methods want (path, params, rack_env) where rack_env is a Hash of Rack environment values.

The docs say you can use the rack_env parameter to pass in session data. I'm trying to put a patch together, but I don't know how to pull the current session hash out of the @browser object.

thanks for any help you can provide!

    Erik, It would be awesome if you could add your little test case to the sinatra integration tests in webrat and add them here as a pull request. It will make it much easier, and more timely, for us to fix things.
