    Classic ASP.

    Which is the best way (some links please) to write code for a cart in asp?

    Is there a way to write a cart that works also without cookies?

    Any help appreciated.

    Regards.

    Sure. Session variables, query strings, temporary database storage...

    No. They are stored on the server. The server sends a cookie to the
    browser which identifies the session. When the browser sends that
    cookie back, the server knows where to look to find the stored server
    variables.

    Which may or may not defeat the objective of the poster, if cookies
    are the issue and not the ability of a hacker to change a cookie and
    spoof your store.
