stateless app

Stateless apps are those that do not store data from web sessions. This necessitates the stateless HTTP protocol, where the server does not keep data from the previous HTTP request- response session on hand to use in the next server- client session.

Each individual session is executed as if it were the first request-response. Data from a new session does not revert to data from the previous session.

Stateless apps are particularly well suited for rendering static web pages that always have the same content. With a stateless app, when a web page is refreshed, all data is completely reloaded. Previous logins are no longer present; the login process must be performed again.

The situation is different with stateful apps, where certain data from the previously accessed web page continues to be used.
