Old clunker re-visited: Session_OnEnd in Global.ASA

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by Bob Milutinovic, Jul 16, 2007.

  1. Greetings, folks.

    Through the years there's always been trepidation about relying on the
    Session_OnEnd routine being fired at the conclusion of a user session, hence
    my instinctive avoidance of using it in anything I've created.

    Now comes a time when it'd actually be desirable to use this feature; can
    anyone tell me if its reliability is any better with IIS6 (under Server
    2003) than it was with previous IIS incarnations?

    Thanks in advance,

    Nope - sorry. Aaron's articles still tell the story:

    Thanks, Bob; at least there's some consistency there even if it's not the
    most desirable ;-)
