    Session state, cookieless, release date questions


    firstly, i'd like to thank those of you who have answered my session state
    questions for being patient as i slowly refine and finalize my questions.

    1. what is the actual target date for a release version for NGWS?

    2. how do i use the SQL SERVER state plugin? where do i install it from ?
    etc.

    3. can i use the cookieless option without ASP+ munging the sessionid into
    the URL (let's say i would place the sessionid in a hidden field) ?

    4. will the protocol used by the ASP State service (or the SQL SERVER state
    pluginn) be public? will the service be configurable? will features like
    writing the data into a different repository be supported?

    5. my current understanding of persisting data objects in session state management
    in ASP+ is that all objects implementing the ISerializable interface that
    are "inserted" to the session object will be persisted implicitly.
    let's assume that i have my own object obj that have its own persist and
    unpersist functions. can someone send me a COM sample of implementing ISerializable
    for obj?

    thanks

    NGWS is not a term being used anymore (and is too vague to really be sure
    what you are asking for).

    The .NET Frameworks SDK (which includes the Common Language Runtime, ASP+,
    and the compiler that lets you run C# code) is now in "pre-beta" and
    available to MSDN Univeral and Professional subscribers. It will be
    available to the public in the next week or two (at least the PDC bits will
    be).

    I don't expect to see a released version before the end of the year, but I
    haven't heard any "official guesses" from Microsoft, so who knows?

    Visual Studio.NET (which is not included in the .NET Frameworks SDK) has
    been released in a pre-beta state to just the PDC attendees. We expect a
    beta to start for both Visual Studio.NET and the .NET Frameworks SDK in the
    third quarter of 2000 (at least that's what Microsoft has been saying
    publicly lately).

    I don't think we'll be able to buy Visual Studio.NET before June of next
    year, but that's just my guess.

    We're hoping that Microsoft ships the .NET Frameworks SDK sooner than that,
    but no one really knows Microsofts plans for any of this.

    Check http://www.devx.com/free/press/2000/...sresources.asp for more
    information. As soon as Microsoft releases more information, we'll make it
    public there.

    I'll let the experts answer the rest of the questions here.

    Thanks!

    Not announced that I know of.

    No plugin. Just change some settings in config.web and start the service I
    believe.

    Nope. Not all pages have forms to use hidden fields.

    Supposedly in memory out of proc and SQL Server are the only two supported
    stores. Although the Session() object is obviously now replaceable so you
    could replace it with any other store. Say sa-session by Software Artisans.

    Have yet to see an example myself.
