in thread New Session for new Window (or: Session ID vs. Process ID...)

Thanks for the response.
It is clear to me that I actually work with cookies, and that I need to "manage the cookies", but what that I want is not to create new cookie, but instead work with the document cookie and just (it seems for me that this is really a "just" - a simple task) create what you called cookies local to the thread to be local to the window.
Can I do this at all ?

Thanks,
shushu

    Instead of using the $Session object, use $Response->Cookie() and give it a value. What are you using the $Session object for depends on what you'd store in the ->Cookie (specific to your particular ASP application). This way, you can be gaurenteed that Session->Abandon() won't change your Session ID.

    How are you authenticating the users? A database of some sort?

      My application is a strange one. I do not use the Session to authenticate anything, and I don't have any permission handling, since I don't need it.

      You wrote that by handling the $Response->Cookie I can force the $Session->Abandon to do nothing (by setting the cookie's Session ID key to the value I want - great).
      But - I want the opposite - I want to create a different Sessions per window.
      Before trying (which I will just going to do) I am almost certain that forcing a new Session ID in the Response->Cookie won't create a new cookie per window, and that I will still be with a Session per process.

      What do you think ?

        There's not really any way to tell what windows are separate from each other. HTTP is a stateless protocol, and there's no way to tell from what window something was spawned. Netscape, Opera, IE, lynx et al all behave differently with regards to cookies and windows. There's really no good way to tell.

        If I may ask, why would you want the Session to be different for each window?
