    Hi, I posted this question but somehow it is not here =(


    When I release session objects I do this
    Code:

    Code:
    session("username")=""

    So whats the difference when I do this
    Code:

    Code:
    set session("username")=nothing
    or
    session.remove("username")
    

    Isn't I already release it with a null value?

    Session.Remove actually removes the key from the session collection, whereas setting the key = nothing, essentially does the same, but the key still exists in the collection. Performance wise, just setting the key value = nothing will be faster, as there really isn't a reason to remove the key, especially if later you may just add it back.
