I've been reading and searching on line but i'm confused to the session state mode. What mode is normally recommended in "best practices"?

I have a web site that has 2 applications under it. ncoming requests will hit the web server the web server will pass the request back to our (using an api) Sql server. Data eturned from the sql server will be passed to our web server and back out to the client.

The web server in the middle is handling incoming and outgoing requests. The requests are all data none of the requests are webpages.

In this type of setup what session state should we use?

Do you even need session state? Is your app state or stateless? you need more feedback from tee devs to know more about this.

Are you in a web farm or not?

The asp.net session management I would recommend SQL server state (you need a persistent state for web farm environments)

We are not in a web farm

I'm not sure if the app is state or stateless, all i know is that the app isn't really an app. It's a folder with a bunch of .asmx files that have been changed to an application.

If the app is required to be state or stateless is the key here
