HTTP - HTTP Session State

HTTP Session State

HTTP is a stateless protocol. A stateless protocol does not require the HTTP server to retain information or status about each user for the duration of multiple requests. However, some web applications implement states or server side sessions using one or more of the following methods:

  • HTTP cookies.
  • Query string parameters, for example, /index.php?session_id=some_unique_session_code.
  • Hidden variables within web forms.

Famous quotes containing the words state and/or session:

    A multitude of causes unknown to former times are now acting with a combined force to blunt the discriminating powers of the mind, and unfitting it for all voluntary exertion to reduce it to a state of almost savage torpor.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    The bar is the male kingdom. For centuries it was the bastion of male privilege, the gathering place for men away from their women, a place where men could go to freely indulge in The Bull Session ... the release of the guilty anxiety of the oppressor class.
    Shulamith Firestone (b. 1945)
