They are the same. When the code was donated by s&n to Cocoon, they were
sunShine, sunRise etc. But the cocoon community decided that these names are
now well suited for Cocoon, so everything has been renamed to more
names, like session framework or authentication framework.-

Now, a session context is an XML document stored in the session. With the
session transformer (see below) you can fetch xml data out of such a
context and store data in it.

This is not a logicsheet but a transformer, so you can use this transformer
in your cocoon pipeline to set/get data to/from a session context, like
the authentcation session context in the example above.
