Conclusion

Session State is an often misunderstood concept to the ASP.NET professionals.  Often we make mistakes in selecting when to use the Session or store data in the Session.  The proper selection of Session State Storage mechanism is also absolutely essential for a web application.  ASP.NET provides three session state storage modes: In-Proc, State Server, and SQL Server.  This article has discussed all three Session State storage modes in detail with code examples whenever necessary.  It has also discussed the pros and cons of using the Session State to store user data. It should be noted that we should choose the right type of the Session Storage mode for our application and at the same time ensure that we store the right type of the objects in the Session. Storing too many objects in the Session would degrade the performance of the application to a great extent.  I welcome readers' comments and suggestions.

Title: Firefox and IE process session differently

Hi,

I found firefox keeps same value of "ASP.NET_SessionId" session on every new opened browser window. But IE generated a new "ASP.NET_SessionId". So you could not share sesssion data between new opened browser window in IE.

Title: Session State questions

Hi Joydip,

I could access to session using both "Response.Redirect(url,false);" and "Response.Redirect(url)". I really could not tell what's the differences between them.

Recently one my cowork set "sessionState mode='StateServer'" instead of "mode='InProc'", because he said the session were lost sometimes. Did you have this kind of problem? If you had it, please tell me how you fixed it.

By the way, if I have big data block, like a big hashtable, Should I save it to session or viewstate? Why?

Thanks.
Michael
