Sorry I wasn't clear.
The Oracle providers for ASP look to be exactly what I need however all of our current applications are on ODP.NET 10.1, so in order to use them, we would have to upgrade to using 11.1. In the environment we are in, the effort including paperwork, actual
upgrade, and testing would be far mor than we're able to handle right now, so this isn't exactly feasable, however it's not unlikely we won't do the upgrade in the near future.
Knowing we might be able to do that upgrade soon, I'd like to plan for it and code my current app to be able to take advantage of the Profile model, saving variables on a per user basis for personalization of the web app.
For the time being, I need to at least be able to maintain the users settings for the duration of a visit, so I'd like to find a Profile Provider that simply saves the variables off to Session. This would allow my users to have all of their personalization
data saved for the duration of a visit to the site, and when we are ready to make that 11.1 upgrade, I can simply change the web.config file to use the Oracle Profile Provider and I that should make my app instantly save across visits too.
I'm working on writing one now, however I'm having some issues as the final firing of the save seems to be happening after the "Session" has gone away for a given postback. I'm working out the details, but was wondering if anyone knows of something similar.
