The arguments for the method are:
Using this method, you can create named sessions that can be referenced later in the same application as long as the session object referred to is in scope. Once a session has been created, the application can reference it by way of the
ConnectSession method or the
OraSessions collection of their respective
OraClient object. The
OraSessions collection only contains sessions created within the current application. Therefore, it is not possible to share sessions across applications, only within applications.
This method is provided for simplicity and is equivalent to the
CreateSession method of the
This example demonstrates the use of
CreateNamedSession methods to allow an application to use a session it previously created, but did not save. Copy this code into the definition section of a form. Then, press F5.
