Could not Deserialize the session data


Recently there was an issue with the session not getting invalidated upon logging out in adf page. we were using the following code to invalidate the session in the logout method


FacesContext fc = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
ExternalContext ec = fc.getExternalContext();
HttpServletRequest req = (HttpServletRequest) ec.getRequest();
HttpServletResponse res = (HttpServletResponse) ec.getResponse();
HttpSession ses = (HttpSession) req.getSession(false);
ses.invalidate();
res.sendRedirect(target);
fc.responseComplete();

with the above code the following exception was thrown to the user


java.lang.NullPointerException

the issue is solved using the solution given in this forum

ie. we have to release the Datacontrol also to invalidate the session

...
ValueBinding vb = fc.getCurrentInstance().getApplication().createValueBinding("#{data}");
BindingContext bc = (BindingContext)vb.getValue(fc.getCurrentInstance());
DataControl dc = bc.findDataControl("DataControl");
dc.release(DataControl.REL_ALL_REFS);

Nic tool to keep multiple terminal sessions – Pedorosa


Recently I got to know this tool from my colleague to keep track of multiple terminal sessions under a single view.

For example, imagine you are working on multiple server session and you want to keep track of the session or the server running. search for the log files, tailing log outputs then we will open n number of putty terminals to connect to the server or telnet multiple windows. But how will this be organized under one single window?

That where the software Pedorasa come into picture.

The screenshot of the sample is
