Subject Re: problems with sessions and upgrading
Date Wed, 02 Oct 2002 21:44:21 GMT
hi perrin,

yes, i did read the discussion with interest a few months
back regarding what should be stored in a session and
what in the back end database.  customer and order data
is properly stored in a secured back end system.  the cart
contains data that i want to keep for 30 days, such
as cart data, affiliate reference data and things of that

i have found the sessions to be simple, quick, convenient and
a reliable way to maintain this transient data.  the fact is,
the data is in there, and i need to migrate it to the new sessions.
i may redesign the system at a later time, but the buying
season is upon us, and reenginerring this part of the system
is not in the current plans.
