Hi all,

I feel sorry to hear that their business was not good as expected, however, i am curious that what kind of webserver and program used to host their web application. Is it something like EJB session Bean ? The shopping cart still keeps my selected items even I closed the browser, do you think they used the DB to logged down the history ???

myriad Thanks

Hi YuenLian,

Not sure what app server they use, neither whether they use EJBs or not, but I can tell you about the shopping chart being always activated. This is because they are using cookies and could easily restore your session information from there. Of course they are loading the information from the database (and not SFSBs in my opinion, since they can be destroyed by the container after a certain amount of inactivity time). As a matter of fact you can check this pretty easily (I�m assuming you�re using IE). Click on the Tools and chose Internet Options� from the drop down menu. In the Internet Options window click the Settings� button. On the Settings window click the View Files button. Locate the cookie that ends with amazon.com and remove it. Next time when you�ll visit their site the shopping char should be empty.
Regards.
