Abstract
For many World Wide Web applications there is a need to provide session semantics so that users have the impression of a continuous interaction. This is true, for example, when one searches a database interactively. Because WWW servers are stateless some extra mechanism is necessary to give the impression of session semantics. This report discusses a strategy for implementing session semantics over a WWW application. Apart from the need to maintain state during interactive sessions, there is also the need to control the application. Under any circumstances this is a tedious activity. This report also discusses a mechanism for modeling a WWW application as a finite state automaton and describes a tool, the Stateful Server Application Tool (SSAT), built to assist in the development of these applications.
