A Session object stores information about, or change settings for a user session.
When you are working with an application on your computer, you open it, do some changes and then
you close it. This is much like a Session. The computer knows who you are. It knows when you

web server does not know who you are and what you do, because the HTTP address doesn't maintain

user's computer and it contains information that identifies the user. This interface is called
the Session object.

object when the session expires.
The Session object's collections, properties, methods, and events are described below:
