Clearing Collection Session State

Clearing the session state of a collection removes the collection members. A shopping cart is a good example of when you might need to clear collection session state. When a user requests to empty the shopping cart and start again, you must clear the session state for a collection. You can remove session state of a collection by calling the TRUNCATE_COLLECTION method or by using f?p syntax.

Calling the TRUNCATE_COLLECTION method deletes the existing collection and then recreates it, for example:

    p_collection_name => collection name);

You can also use the sixth f?p syntax argument to clear session state, for example:

f?p=App:Page:Session::NO:collection name
