Session state and browser process

Hello,

I am running .NET SQL Session state (V 1.1 blah blah) on a IIS6 server.

The problem is that my application spawns a new window via javascript
once the user logs in.

The user logs in on the main page and the info is stored in a session.

However, on some browsers, the act of opening a new window, creates
another session on the server and the last session (where the goodies
are) is lost to that window.

What can I do?

you could switch to cookieless sessions, or use a hybrid approach. use a
cookie for session management, but allow a sessionid in the querystring used
to open the new window, that overrides the cookie. this would require you
writing your own session manager, but its not hard.

Thanks Bruce,

but unfortuantley I can't use cookieless sessions states since I can't
pass stuff on the url (I am making AJAX like calls). I am thinking
that I will have to pass into each AJAX like call, a param being the
sessionID so I can recover the sessions (from my custom session DB).
I'll then scrap ASP.NET sessions altogether.

Thnks

"The problem is that my application spawns a new window via javascript
once the user logs in."

Is this really a good idea?

By the way, what browsers instantiate a new session by using
javascript window.Open(). I've never heard of a browser
doing that?

I think it is; that is why I am doing it that way (strange question)

Explorer is doing it (but not on all computers, just some (great))

I too had never heard of this and didn't believe it, until I actually
saw it. Still I didn't believe it until I actually tested it several
times. Still don't want to believe it but it is fact

There must be a registery hack somewhere that forces explorer into a
new process (or just forcing a new sesison on the server somehow, I am
assuming explorer is in a new process, bcause it forces a new session
on the server. but I digress)

It is the strangest thing I have seen since the 'incident', (I have
never been able to play ping pong since)

When a user opens a new IE browser window using File-New-Window the integrity of an application which relies on session state is COMPLETELY undermined. Anyone who overlooks the fact that File-New-Window creates an instance of IE in the same process with the same SessionID as the parent window is in big trouble. This fundamentally restricts the usefullness of using session state management. I probably missed it somewhere - can...
