I'll come out and say it. My name is Jason Olson, and I work for a company that still develops classic ASP pages. We have not had the time or resources to migrate to ASP.NET. The issue is that we need to continually develop new modules for our classic ASP site. That leaves us with little or no time to spend migrating the site to ASP.NET. We can't afford to stop development for a long time while we build a new ASP.NET site from scratch. Hence, the only feasible migration path for us is to bring over code to ASP.NET on a module-by-module basis. The problem with this is that our classic ASP code base is fairly large and most solutions that exist to share Session between the two require fairly intrusive code modification to your classic ASP site.

Thanks to Bertrand Le Roy, I was exposed to a product called StateStitch. This product allows you to share the session between classic ASP and ASP.NET without intrusive changes to your classic ASP code base. In fact, the primary change to your classic ASP code base is to add a single include file at the top of each page (or in one common include page that all pages include). I'm just trying a demo of it out now, and it friggin' rocks! If you happen to find yourself in the same shoes as us, check it out!

I'm definitely going to check that out. I'm in exactly the same boat. It's quite frustrating, knowing that the new thing they want me to add, would be so much better in .Net.

Maybe now I have a reasonable option.

The company making StateStitch, Consonica, stopped selling and supporting the product. In fact I believe they simply closed up sop all together. I work for a company currently using StateStitch2005 and we are having problems getting it to work with .net v3.5 It throws up some invocation exception and I think it may have something to do with the changes to reflection persminsion in .net 3.5 (or possiby v2.0 SP1, we are currently running v2.0 on our production servers).

I need to access the session from asp to asp.net without using cookie and storing in database.

Please kindly give me suggestion
