AppServer and Client Interaction : Understanding AppServer operating modes : State-reset operating mode : Context management
Context management
Because each AppServer agent is dedicated to a client connection, the AppServer session maintains all session context between client requests. Thus, for example, any global values or database connections that you set in remote procedures remain available for the life of the connection or until you change them during some remote procedure call.
In between connections, an AppServer session running in state-reset operating mode resets its context to the initial state. This initial state is its context after the AppServer agent first starts and after all AppServer agent startup parameters take effect, including databases connections.
