I have been really frustrated trying to figure out what session management is about. What I do not understand is how is it implemented in a real world application like say Yahoo or Hotmail. Could anyone please help?


Hope this helps. Correct me if I am wrong.<p>Cheers <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> ,<br />Kapil

session management is to track who you are. like for hotmail you cannot log on without session management. it is used so your stuff doesnt get mixed in with somebody elses.
