Collecting information to store in session variables

Before creating a session variable, you must first obtain the information you want to store, then send it to the server for storage. This section describes how to gather and send information to the server using HTML forms or hypertext links containing URL parameters. You can also obtain information from cookies stored on the user’s computer, from the HTTP headers sent by the user’s browser with a page request, or from a database.

This section covers the following topics:

  • Storing URL parameters in session variables
