Is it magic if the Session manager creates it's own data container? The first one is created for you but not by the Session system. That seems like magic.
Since you say my approach to creating the tempData is flawed from a ZODB stand point. Then "rc.d/init.d" sound good. Although the /startup folder is a common idea for Windows users. Until the temp folder arrived I didn't need such a thing. Maybe the sessionDataManager could register a callback, called during startup. This might be a safer time to create any required temp data. --Darrell ===== Darrell Gallion __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Send FREE video emails in Yahoo!
