PHP and ASP session

P: n/a
I have inherited of a ASP web application and would like to perform any
additional work
in PHP.

If anyone has dealt successfully with this situation and can point me
towards the path of least
resistance I would appreciate it.

Regards,

Although never used it I am aware of it. Never talked to anyone that
actually used it on a medium size project.

Have you?

If the current ASP code was decently written I would go right to that, but,
I would rather hear a good scenario
of gradual migration and session coexistence.

Thank you,

I've used it but only on fairly simple projects. It seems to do a
reasonable job, if you're thinking of converting completely anyway,
why not give it a test run and see?

Thanks Mike, I am planning to take it for a spin but conversion will occur
over a period of time
so today we need to have a way for the users to jump from PHP and ASP areas
keeping data
held in session.

I don't know how ASP handles sessions or stores session data, but
it's possible to define custom session handlers for PHP that allow
you to store your session data in a database. So if you can do
something similar with ASP then in theory sharing session data
should just be a matter of matching ID's and converting the data.

Personally I don't see any other way but I thought I would ask the group
anyway before
starting the work.
