Some questions about sessions:
I know sessions information is stored in the form of cookie and you can use qurystring for that if you set cookieless session in web.config. But I don't exactly understand the scope of a session.
What I believe is when you login to a website, a session cookie is created and the scope of that session is within that page only. If you close the browser that session gets killed and when you open the browser again and go to that site then a new session is created ie a new session is created on every request. Is this correct?
But I have seen in many websites, even if you close the browser and open it again the session is not killed, how does that happen?
Can anyone clear out and explain the scope/lifetime of sessions
Hi, there is an upgrade to my infimacs server and my web application encounter this error after the infimacs is upgraded.
Below is the information on the server before/after the upgrade.
Solaris 8 Solaris 10
IDS 9.40 IDS 11.50
The web server where the web application hosted is running IBM Informix Connect 2.81. There is no such error before the upgrade is done.
As a developer, i have IBM Informix Client-SDK 2.90 installed on my local pc and debug the page where the read is needed from infimacs but no such error found.
The error come out only when it is hosted on the web server where IBM Informix Connect 2.81 is installed.
I have gone through many articles and it suggest me to set the environement variable in the server : DB_LOCALE=en_us.819.
I haven't try this solution but i think that this might not be the best solution.
Is it possible to to to have this settin
First I will say I googled (Binged to make Bill happy) for this but could not find anything, perhaps I am not stating what I need correctly;
I have a website that a customer creates orders (for a printing company) and after the order, I would like to email the customer a link to view the status of their order;
I need to send the CustomerID in the link so on the returning page if a CustomerID is detected in the querystring, I "auto login" the client and open the "Dashboard" for the order page for that customer.
Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how to send the link and how to parse the querystring to get the values from the link;
Thank you if you can point me in the right direction.

Having the capability to draw pictures usually isn't enough for a good information visualization platform. The key to building a visualization platform is capabilities such as interactivity, generating metadata, and overlaying related data. You need a level of flexibility that lets you render any data in any way at any time.

The Office XP Web Services Toolkit makes it possible to build applications that gather information and trigger transactions through various Web Services. The toolkit allows you to easily discover Web Services remotely. It also includes the Web Service Reference Tool, which lets you call a Web Service from inside an Office application. This article shows how toolkit-generated code can be used to access simple, as well as complex, Web Services.The author steps through the auto-generated code to explain the classes that collect parameters, the schema to format the request/response, and the actual operations of the Web Service.

The adoption of wireless devices continues to spread unabated, and organizations are looking for new ways to get in touch with customers through these new mobile devices. In the past, unsuccessful ideas such as push technology were used to send targeted information to customers. Now, SQL Server Notification Services uses the SQL Server 2000 database engine and the .NET Framework to promote a new breed of notification applications that will allow relevant, consensual communications to be sent to any subscriber device.Here the author provides an architectural overview of the core features that make up SQL Server Notification Services. Along the way he discusses how they can be used for pushing Web content.

XML has quickly become the new data structure standard for everything from database access to cross-platform computing. XML is typically considered to be a vehicle for data exchange, dynamic data presentation, and data storage. However, the potential of XML far surpasses those limited applications. This article examines one new use: the gathering of data across a number of forms in an ASP.NET Beta 1 framework application. The sample program is a Web app used for ordering pizza. It uses ASP and C# to gather order information and then stores it in XML. To build the application, several concepts are explained, including data collection, order persistence using cookies, grouping input forms, and formatting the data for display.

The built-in Object Browser in Visual Basic, like other component browsers such as OLE View and XRay, is one of the more useful tools. But an even better tool would be customizable. You can build your own type library browser using the TypeLib Information Object Library (TLI), a set of COM objects designed to allow programmers to browse type libraries programmatically. This article explains type libraries and the TLI object model, and shows how to use the collections to get information about objects, leading to the creation of a custom type library explorer.
