How to use Session Scope E-mail
User Rating: / 144
PoorBest 

A session is an object associated with a visitor. Data can be put in the session and retrieved from it, much like a Hash table. A different set of data is kept for each visitor to the site.

Here is a set of pages that put a user's name in the session, and display it elsewhere. Try out installing and using these.

First write a form, let us call it DemoSession.html

DemoSession.html

<HTML>
<BODY>
<FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="DemoSession.jsp">
What's your name? <INPUT TYPE=TEXT NAME=username SIZE=20>
<P><INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT>
</FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>



Image

The target of the form is "DemoSession.jsp", which saves the user's name in the session.

DemoSession.jsp

<%
   String name = request.getParameter"username" );
   session.setAttribute"theName", name );
%>
<HTML>
<BODY>
<A HREF="NextPage.jsp">Continue</A>
</BODY>
</HTML>


Image

The DemoSession.jsp saves the user's name in the session, and puts a link to another page, NextPage.jsp.

NextPage.jsp shows how to retrieve the saved name.

NextPage.jsp

<HTML>
<BODY>
Hello, <%= session.getAttribute"theName" %>
</BODY>
</HTML>


Image

The session is kept around until a timeout period. Then it is assumed that the user is no longer visiting the site, and the session is discarded.
