Interesting Challenge or lack of platform understanding?
A developer approached me with an interesting question: " In a Domino web application I need to prevent the same user account being used simultaneously in different sessions". I found that question quite interesting and tried to make sense of it (which I couldn't, so I ask here):
- It sounds like a question straight out of the eighties: Users must only logon to the application once.
- Domino doesn't count user sessions, so licensing can't be an issue. If the web page has been transmitted no additional resources are consumed, so load factor can't be an issue.
- A "session" in HTTP is identified by a successful login and can include multiple connections (different browser windows, retrieval of html, css, js, XML, images etc.). The only differentiator would be "login from a different location", which becomes difficult for users behind a shared NAT.
