Subject Re: disabling sessions in certain parts of a webapp
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2005 19:12:19 GMT
I can't think of any drawbacks to the filter, and tha's what I would have
suggested.  Although, it probably doesn't even have to be as complicated
as a wrapper... simply check for an existing session for the paths you do
want a session created for, and if none is present go ahead and create it.
 I *think* that would do the trick.
