Can anybody clarify me in simple words...

what exactly is the definition for...
persistent fields
persistent data
persistent state

I just kno this thing::

Data that exists from session to session.
Information that endures beyond a single instance of use, e.g., longer than one call attempt.

'Persistence' in this context I think means 'storable in permanent data store' like a relational database. Though this is a pretty subjective answer. Specific answers anybody

persistent fields mean fields of database table
persistent data mean data to be stored to database table.
persistent state is the state of data.

Thanks,
