Can we update MVC application without killing active sessions.

Hi,

It may be silly question :-)

I have a MVC web application which is live...and at times we have to make changes which are important and needs to be updated on live site imminently, but when we replace the code it resets all active user sessions and kicks them to login page.

Some of the users may be in the middle of data entry and would loose all their data entered.

I would like to know if there is a way that we upload the needed files and it would not kill the sessions.

Thanks,

If you replace web.config, IIS will restart the app domain, which will dump the sessions. If you update the DLLs, you may encounter file-locking issues if any users are currently using the app. You can update the views (i.e. the .cshtml files) without causing sessions to be dumped.
