Subject Re: [HA and failover - Re: saving session attributes across server machines]
Date Fri, 20 Apr 2001 16:36:26 GMT
This is a good link, for one thing it had a link to
another article that explains the stateless nature
of the http protocol as I understand it:

"What is a session?
The interaction between a Web browser and a Web server is stateless. The 
browser connects to the server, requests a single piece of information, 
then disconnects, at which point the server completely forgets about the 
transaction and awaits the next request. Sessions are traditionally used to 
create a state for Web-based communications. Essentially, they are 
dictionaries of name-value pairs that persist from one request to the next."

I thought we could all benefit from this after the discussion from
the other day on this topic.
