Default How not to abuse Session variables?

Hi, All,

Realizing session variables' usefulness has given me some concerns. Are there any rules/guidelines that I need to pay attention, so that I won't abuse these variables unintentionally? performance? memory? etc.

Also, another issue related to using global.asa. In chapter 8, it mentions the potential problem using global.asa. And it reminds us to 'declare the application explicitly', what dose this mean? how do you explicitly declare an application?

Read Tip 6: Using the Session Object Wisely and Tip 2, 4, 5 should be of your interest. Though all that could give you good idea about performance.

Hope that helps.
