Websites come in many sizes, with the content as varied as the people who developed them.Â Some are strictly content while some are eCommerce and heavy transactional.Â It doesnâ€™t matter the technology used to create the site, whether it be DotNet, ASP, PHP or even Java Based I have been used in all of them.
Â Â I am probably more prevalent in transactional web sites but it is hard to imagine I have not been used in some content only sites. Â I can make your programming much easier when used properly, but I can also frustrate you and make debugging a little tricky to find that I am the problem.Â I am like the genie that appears when you rub the bottle, I am there by a mere mention of my name.Â
I hold data for you.Â You had better not need the data very long after you summon me because I donâ€™t live very long and therefore I am better used when a response from the website user is not needed.Â
One last clue: You cannot bake or eat me.
Who am I?Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
