I'm building an application that needs to have roles for
users, as i know flex doesn't use sessions, what is the best way to
keep the user information always on so that i know what are their
permissions across the application?
I'm using modules and as my backend i'm using Asp.Net
webservices and SQL server as my database
I have handled this by creating a numeric security level for
various types of users. I created a variable that gets assigned a
value when the user logs in and is cleared when they log out. Based
on the users security level, I limit what menu options they can
see, what states they can see, and if they can view and update
data, just view it, or have no access to it, etc.
