Hello Patrick, Hello Jan -

Nice to hear from both of you - I’ve know Patrick for *many* years, and I did a consulting job for KPN *many* years ago.

Radiator by default uses an in-memory session database which you can use to get started.

However, as Patrick says, to be most useful you would typically use an SQL session database.

If you can give me a bit more detail I’ll try to make some suggestions.
