    storing Bluetooth target in session variable


    I would like to know if there is a way to preserve BlueTooth connection details in a mod_python session variable (under MWS).
    My plan is to use javascript for calling periodically via AJAX a python script for collecting GPS data. However, every time this is done the select BT source menu shows up. I would like to have this shown only first time and then to feed connection details from a session variable rather than from user input - bt_discover().

    I have tried
    address, services = socket.bt_discover()
    session['target'] = (address, services.values()[0])

    but at second reload of page the session['target'] does not exist. Session is working with other variables - I have tested it with simple strings. For example str(target) is also preserved , but becomes unusable for socket connection.

    Another solution for this purpose would be to use a python timer instead of javascript calls. However I did not find any reference on how to include a timer under mod_python.

    Any hint would be greatly appreciated - python was not my first choice for programming, but I see many advantages in using it.

    all the best,

    Never mind. I have solved this issue: a str(target) before putting it in session variable was the answer.

    All the best,
