Smart Trigger API for Java to monitor smart trigger session changes at the backend DB

The Smart Trigger Java library allows for the use of a detachable session which is assigned a session ID. One can use this session ID to reconnect to an existing session when starting up a Smart Trigger. But, if for some reason this session ID in the database is removed after the application startup, there is no way for the application to be aware of this change because the monitoring works in the background. 

Need a way to improve the monitoring within the application to proactively detect any smart trigger session changes on DB, by using API calls from Java program.

    At least, when registering a session id , the API should tell the session is valid or not. Otherwise this feature is difficult to use optimally.

    IfxSmartTrigger trigger = new IfxSmartTrigger()


    trigger.sessionID("14"); // In the detachable mode, if this session id is invalid, the API should throw an error
