This is a follow up post to Basic Sample - How To Keep ASP.NET ViewState On The Server
ASP.NET 2.0 offers much easier built-in mechanism to save ViewState on the server in Session using SessionPageStatePersister. Thanks to Russ who pointed me to this feature available in ASP.NET 2.0 via comments in the previous post.
The details can be found here ASP.NET 2.0 Page State Persister [thanks go to Eddie from our own ACE team for the pointer].
Short analysis. Using SessionPageStatePersister to store VIewState is very convenient as there is no code needed, almost. The down side is that this approach allows storing ViewState only in Session while the approach described in previous post allows routing ViewState to any storage of your choice – Session, Cache, DB, Web Services – up to your imagination. This can be important when considering scalability aspects of the solution that kazlak pointed out in the comments for the previous post.
