Apex Cache Tracker to remove session cache

Here is the problem that needed to be solved:
1. Use session cache to cache some user information like their profile or user settings
2. When a external systems update the information and try to remove the session cache as it got updated it fails because it does not have access to a users session cache

Build a session tracker in Org Cache to track missed removal of session cache

Step 1: When a session cache remove fails add it to the Org level tracker cache. The format of session keys are the following:
key + userId (Salesforce userId)

That way I can keep track of what userId’s I need to remove session cache
String splitStrKey = key.substring(0, key.length()-18);
String splitUserId = key.substring(key.length()-18, key.length());

will split into key and userId

public Boolean remove(String key) {
      if (!System.isBatch() && !System.isFuture() && !Test.isRunningTest()){
        Boolean removed = false;
        if (sessionCacheEnabled && sessionPartition!=null) {
              System.debug('inside session cache remove key: ' + key);
              removed = sessionPartition.remove(key);
              if (!removed && key!=null && key.length() > 18){
                String splitStrKey = key.substring(0, key.length()-18);
                String splitUserId = key.substring(key.length()-18, key.length());
                System.debug('Session remove failed key ' + splitStrKey + ' for ' + splitUserId + ' adding to tracker');
                removeFailedAddToTracker(splitStrKey, splitUserId, null);
          } else if (orgPartition!=null){
              removed = orgPartition.remove(key);

        if (removed) {
          System.debug(LoggingLevel.DEBUG, 'Removed key ' + key);
          return true;
        } else{
          System.debug(LoggingLevel.DEBUG, 'Not removed key not found ' + key);
          return false;
      } else {
        System.debug(LoggingLevel.DEBUG, 'Skipping cache remove in batch ' + key);
        return false;

Step 2: Add session keys to Org level tracker cache (CACHE_USER_CACHE_TRACKER), we will add it as Map<Id, Map> where Map contains UserId as key and Map of all the session keys that needs to be removed

public void removeFailedAddToTracker(String keyPrefix, Id userId, Set<Id> clientIds){
      if (App_Service.isIntegrationUser(userId)){
        Map<String, String> mapOfContactUserIds = (Map<String, String>)getOrgPartition().get(App_Rest_Constants.CACHE_USER_CONTACT_MAP);
        Map<Id, Map<String, Id>> mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker = (Map<Id, Map<String, Id>>)getOrgPartition().get(App_Rest_Constants.CACHE_USER_CACHE_TRACKER);
        if (clientIds!=null && !clientIds.isEmpty()){
          for (Id clientId : clientIds){
            if (mapOfContactUserIds!=null && mapOfContactUserIds.containsKey(clientId)){
              Id userIdToClearCache = mapOfContactUserIds.get(clientId);

              if (mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker!=null){
                if (mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker.containsKey(userIdToClearCache)){
                  Map<String, Id> existingCacheStrings = mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker.get(userIdToClearCache);
                  existingCacheStrings.put(keyPrefix, userIdToClearCache);
                  mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker.put(userIdToClearCache, existingCacheStrings);
                } else {
                  mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker.put(userIdToClearCache, new Map<String, Id>{keyPrefix=>userIdToClearCache});
              } else {
                mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker = new Map<Id, Map<String, Id>>();
                mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker.put(userIdToClearCache, new Map<String, Id>{keyPrefix=>userIdToClearCache});
        } else {
          if (mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker!=null && mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker.containsKey(userId)){
            Map<String, Id> existingMap = mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker.get(userId);
            existingMap.put(keyPrefix, userId);
            mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker.put(userId, existingMap);
          } else {
            if (mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker==null){
              mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker = new Map<Id, Map<String, Id>>();
            mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker.put(userId, new Map<String, Id>{keyPrefix=>userId});

        if (mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker!=null)
          getOrgPartition().put(App_Constants.CACHE_USER_CACHE_TRACKER, mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker);

Step 3: Every time before we check if session cache contains a key we will see if the same key is contained in the CACHE_USER_CACHE_TRACKER cache. If yes remove it from the users session cache so that cache can be removed and new query can be done

  public Boolean containsKey(String cacheKey){
      Boolean containsKey = false;
      if (!System.isBatch() && !System.isFuture() && !Test.isRunningTest()){
           if (sessionCacheEnabled==false && orgPartition!=null){
              if (orgPartition.get(cacheKey)!=null){
                containsKey = true;
          } else if (sessionCacheEnabled && sessionPartition!=null) {
              if (sessionPartition.get(cacheKey)!=null){
                containsKey = true;

                Map<Id, Map<String, Id>> mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker = (Map<Id, Map<String, Id>>)getOrgPartition().get(App_Rest_Constants.CACHE_USER_CACHE_TRACKER);
              	if (mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker!=null && mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker.containsKey(UserInfo.getUserId())){
            			Map<String, Id> flagsToClear = mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker.get(UserInfo.getUserId());

                  Boolean removeFlag = false;
            			for (String flagToClear : flagsToClear.keySet()){
            				if (flagToClear.equalsIgnoreCase(cacheKey)){
                      String keyToRemove = flagToClear + flagsToClear.get(flagToClear);
            					Boolean removeItemFromCache = getSessionPartition().remove(keyToRemove);
                      removeFlag = true;
                      containsKey = false;

                  if (removeFlag){
                    for (String flagToClear : flagsToClear.keySet()){
                      if (flagsToClear.isEmpty() && flagsToClear.size()==0){
                      } else {
                        mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker.put(UserInfo.getUserId(), flagsToClear);
                    getOrgPartition().put(App_Rest_Constants.CACHE_USER_CACHE_TRACKER, mapOfExistingCacheQueueTracker);

      return containsKey;

Apex Check User Session Still Valid

Checking if a user has a valid session before making a query or call else an INVALID_SESSION error will be returned. The value of time remaining for the session can be cached and referenced so this query only runs a few times. Every time a user makes a request we can check the cache and see if the user has time remaining.

Query session information and returning UserSession model

public static UserSession getUserSessionInfo(User userObj){
      UserSession bpUserSession = new UserSession();
      List<AuthSession> session = [Select LastModifiedDate, NumSecondsValid from AuthSession where UsersId = : userObj.Id] ;

      for(AuthSession sessionObj : session){

      if (bpUserSession.getSecondsValid()!=null)

      if( bpUserSession.getSessionExpireTime() > System.now())

      List<AggregateResult> loginHistoryObj = [SELECT MAX(LoginTime) FROM LoginHistory WHERE UserId = : userObj.Id GROUP BY UserId];

      DateTime loginDateTime = (DateTime)loginHistoryObj[0].get('expr0');
      Date loginDate = loginDatetime.date();
      if( logindate != (DateTime.now()).date())

     return bpUserSession;

User Session model to set session information

    public class UserSession {
      DateTime lastModifiedDate;
      Integer secondsValid;
      DateTime sessionExpireTime;
      Boolean sessionValid;
      DateTime loginTime;

      public void setLastModifiedDate(DateTime lastModifiedDate){
        this.lastModifiedDate = lastModifiedDate;

      public DateTime getLastModifiedDate(){
        return lastModifiedDate;

      public void setSecondsValid(Integer secondsValid){
        this.secondsValid = secondsValid;

      public Integer getSecondsValid(){
        return secondsValid;

      public void setSessionExpireTime(DateTime sessionExpireTime){
        this.sessionExpireTime = sessionExpireTime;

      public DateTime getSessionExpireTime(){
        return sessionExpireTime;

      public void setSessionValid(Boolean sessionValid){
        this.sessionValid = sessionValid;

      public Boolean getSessionValid(){
        return sessionValid;

      public void setLoginTime(DateTime loginTime){
        this.loginTime = loginTime;

      public DateTime getLoginTime(){
        return loginTime;

Types of Java Beans

There are three types of beans in java:

1. Session Beans, it is also sub divide into two forms

Stateless Session beans

Stateful Session Beans

2. Entity Beans

3. Message Driven Beans or they are also called Message Beans.

Now I will explain them one by one:

Session Bean is created by a customer and its duration is only for the signal client server session. The function performed by this bean is calculations or database access, for the client. This bean can be transactional, because it is not recoverable and due to this may a system crash can occur. Its object is to manage its own unrelenting data.The stateless Session Beans is distributed object which has no connection with informal state; only allow parallel access to beans.Now the Stateful Session Bean has a connection with informal state, but its access is very limited to the customer.The second types are called Entity Bean and its function is to database the unrelenting data. It is recognized by a main key, if the container which is hosted by entity bean crashes, it will destroy the remote reference.Message bean is similar to session bean, except it responds to java message service.
