I am using delphi 7 and INDY HTTPSERVER. Database is firebird. Environment is multithreaded.

At DESIGN TIME, i created a DATAMODULE that contains a TSESSION (autonaming is ON), queries and stored procedures.

At RUNTIME, how do I replicate that DATAMODULE (created at design time) for EVERY http client access? Do I use the repository?  If the datamodule is replicated, will it create NEW UNIQUE TSESSION names and replace the session names on all db components in the newly created datamodule?
Explanation and code will be of help, TY.

just create the DataModule at runtime on each request, instead of design time

dataModule:TDatamodule.Create(nil);

//be sure to free the datamodule when the the request is done
dataModule.Free;

That datamodule I created at design time contains a lot of components already such as queries and stored procedures. It also has a TSESSION component in it.  If I create that datamodule in runtime, that would mean that I would create again, programmatically, all those components inside the new datamodule. And also, that would mean that I will spend more programming time recreating those components.

Could I use that datamodule I already created in design time so that I would not need to recreate all those components again programmatically for runtime purposes (and I would be able to save time)?  
Thanks

If you are inheriting from the TIdHTTPSession, you can just point it to your current datamodule
Just be aware, that if you are sharing components inside threads (which this will do)
Query1, Table1, etc might be in use, and you could run into trouble if 2 threads want to use the same component

type
  TMyHTTPSession = class(TIdHTTPSession)
  public
    WorkerDataModule:TMyDataModule;
  end;

procedure TForm1.IdHTTPServer1CreateSession(ASender: TIdContext; var VHTTPSession: TIdHTTPSession);
begin
    VHTTPSession := TMyHTTPSession.Create(IdHTTPServer1.SessionList);
    (VHTTPSession as TMyHTTPSession).WorkerDataModule := DataModule1;
end;

from that point on, you just say "WorkerDataModule.Table1....." etc

If you had wanted to create your own datamodule, you could do it at the same point

procedure TForm1.IdHTTPServer1CreateSession(ASender: TIdContext; var VHTTPSession: TIdHTTPSession);
begin
    VHTTPSession := TMyHTTPSession.Create(IdHTTPServer1.SessionList);
    (VHTTPSession as TMyHTTPSession).WorkerDataModule := := TDataModule1.Create(nil); // remember to free it later
end;
