There are multiple ways of saving session data using CakePHP's Session component, and each method has its advantages. In this tutorial, you'll learn how to use the Session component by incorporating all three ways into your application, so you'll be able to pick the best one that works for you. You'll also learn how to use the Request Handler component to aid you in your handling of various HTTP requests, including requests from mobile browsers, or requests containing XML or HTML content.

This tutorial is divided into two main topics:

* The different types of session handling covered by CakePHP -- You will learn the advantages and disadvantages of each, and how to implement them.

* How to use the RequestHandler in your controllers -- We will use it for two purposes: to add an RSS feed of your products and to implement Ajax functionality.
