in thread Database searches with persistent results via CGI

Yeah, when these Java consultants did that in a search they built for the company I work for, I was amazed. I called them on their mistake and they first claimed it wasn't a problem and then claimed that it was our fault for not specifying in the contract that they had to support multiple browser windows! (The old "spec was bad" defense.)

I think the problem in their case came from how much the Java servlet session interface looks like a cache. It's very tempting to just cache things in it rather than build your own proper cache. This is something to be wary of with Apache::Session too.

(Incidentally, some of the other posters did mention the idea of using the search terms instead of the session. They just weren't as clear about why.)

[shmem]: in the french alpes, at the end of a gravel road, we had a beer at a hut - and heard an enduro coming up.
[shmem]: not by the road, but from there below where you wouldn't want to walk.
[shmem]: the biker stopped the machine at the table and took off his helmet.
[shmem]: long white hair, long beard the same, then he proceeded to get off the bike
[shmem]: saying "biking itself isn't that much, but getting up and down - hell!"
[shmem]: up and down: on and off the bike, of course
