In this chapter, you learned how to take advantage of three mechanisms for associating information with users as they move from page to page at your Web site. In the first part, you learned how to create and read both session and persistent cookies.
Next, you learned how to store information in session state. You examined how session data can be stored in process, in a Windows service, or with a database table. You also learned how session state can be disabled for a particular page or an entire Web application.
Finally, you learned about cookieless sessions and how to use cookieless sessions to gain all the benefits of session state without any of the drawbacks of relying on cookies.
