I have been using scripting languages for a while now (ASP,PHP) and have only started learning JSP recently.
I was wondering what all the fuss was about using sessions, as it seems more prominent in all the JSP docs and tutorials.
What can be achieved using sessions that can't be my not using them? ie. what is the advantages and/or disadvantages?
I have seen some of the code, but have no idea how sessions work, and whether I should implement it in an upcoming project?
Also, some tuturial or doc for a beginner might help.
Next Project includes:
- User Login/verifying.
- Oracle 8i database connectivity.
