evaluate at runtime

Reported by Axel Tetzlaff | March 15th, 2011 @ 11:32 AM

I want to write an API client app for our REST API. The app serving the API publicizes it over different subdomains for different clients, i.e.:
The client app must be able to query any client depending on the user logged in to the client app.

The set of possible clients is not static and can change any time. is usually set at app startup time, which makes no sense for me, because I don't know to which client the first user accessing my client app belongs to yet.
Resetting site with every request is not a solution, because I think it's not thread safe, since site is a class variable and shared across all parallel requests.

The solution is imho to make site not a value, but either a function or an object that is capable of calculating the site at runtime.

I hope this makes any sense to you.
