Provided by module: Session tag module
Creates a session bound scope. The session is identified
by a session key, given as argument to the session tag. The session key could be e.g.
a key generated by &unique-id;, transported by form variables.
The key that identifies the session.
Could e.g. be a name, an IP adress or a cookie.
- life="number" (900)
Determines how many seconds the session is guaranteed to
persist on the server side. Values over 900 means that the session variables will be stored in a
disk based database when they have not been used within 900 seconds.
If used, the session variables will be immediatly written to the database.
Normally, e.g. when not defined, session variables are only moved to the database when they have
not been used for a while (given that they still have "time to live", as determined by the life
attribute). This will increase the integrity of the session, since the variables will survive a
server reboot, but it will also decrease performance somewhat.
- scope="name" (session)
The name of the scope that is created inside
the session tag.
