    Default Dictionary v/s Database

    Is there a great deal of performance related difference between a dictionary object and a same data being read from a database?<BR><BR>I want to know what is the criteria for choosing one over the other when all that I want to do is to retain information that can be used over separate session objects.<BR><BR>I have noticed that the data written in a dictionary object takes a long time to be removed. This hampers the performance by giving out incorrect data for a considerably long period of time.<BR><BR><BR><BR>

    It seems you store the Dictionary object in the Application object. This is not a good idea, because of it&#039s threading nature the dictionary object locks the application when placed in the application object. So, in that situation you&#039re better off using the database.<BR><BR>Jack van Dijk<BR>jdijk@xs4all.nl
