What are the issues (if any) of setting sessions to expire after an extended period of time as in 4-8 hours? I'm building an intranet app which is designed so that users will access it once in the morning and then leave it used, possibly, for hours at a time. I'm assuming that there aren't too many since
1) we're running it on a intranet 2) sessions are soley to retain state between requests3) its not like a connection to the DB where you can conceivable run out
Hello people,I'm constructing an application with Page Methods and YAHOO UI.I'm Not using Update Panels because Page Methods are faster than Update Panel.
You can post your experiences with this feature of ASP.NET Extensions and vantages of using this type of architecture.
Thanks a lot.

Sorry I am kinda new in web services, so it may sound a bit newbish question.
We have a web service that comunicates with the database and exposes web methods that enables the application to access the database. Each method does only one operation (Insert, Update or Delete). What I need to do is create a transaction that will be consisted of multiple calls to the database, meaning multiple calls of more then one web methods. Can I do that? (I read that if the web method does not throw exception - or ContextUtil.SetAbort() is not called - the transaction will be commited automatically when the web method finishes executing, which I don't want to happen because I want to call another web method in the same transaction, and then manually commit the transaction)
Thank you in advance.
Exceptions in .NET are the fundamental mechanism by which errors and other exceptional conditions are communicated. This month's column provides information about how to aggregate exceptions to help manage a variety of scenarios in which multiple exceptions might result from one operation, including scenarios involving parallelism and concurrency.
