Stateful Portal Services (Caching)?
I'm relatively new to portal component and serivces development, but learning fast.
My question is do portal services have a mechanism for storing objects across instances?
I understand the context of a portal component can be used to store objects per user, session, application, etc. And, it seems intuitive to me that a service's context doesn't contain a "session" per se. However, I'm trying to figure out if there's an "application" or other caching mechanism/context that can be used for persisting a service's objects.
I don't necessarily want to create a service function that must accept a component's request in order to grab a user, session or application context for persistence.
Thanks for your time!
