Differences between Temporary and Persistent Customer Sessions

Table H5.1 not only shows the differences between the two kinds of customer sessions, but also describes when one should be used over the other, as well as which patterns require use of a particular type of customer session.

Most of the patterns you can implement through temporary customer sessions can also be implemented with persistent customer sessions. For example, you can implement INTERNATIONALIZED AND LOCALIZED CONTENT (D10) with temporary customer sessions, by having each customer select a specific language on the homepage. All of the subsequent pages will be displayed in that language, as long as the customer's Web browser remains open. However, once the Web browser is closed, that information is lost. If you used persistent customer sessions, the Web site could store customers' language preferences so that they would not have to select the language every time they visited.
