What's the difference between ImpersonationService and SessionService

Hi all,

When should I use an ImpersonationContext with ImpersonationService and when sould I use executeInLocalView with SessionService ?

Like with the ImpersonationService :

 ImpersonationContext context = new ImpersonationContext();
 impersonationService.executeInContext(context, () -> myContextAwareFunction());

With the sessionService :

 sessionService.executeInLocalView(new SessionExecutionBody()
     public void executeWithoutResult()
         // set current currency
         // set current baseStore

For instance in a Job task, I need to work in a specific baseStore and currency.

Thanks, JL

    The ImpersonationService uses SessionService behind the scenes.

    The ImpersonationService - if using a commerce-licensed Hybris, is an easier way to indicate catalog, currency, user group, and session for running a method within a specific user context.
