The HttpSessionStateBase class is an abstract class that contains the same members as the HttpSessionState class. The HttpSessionStateBase class enables you to create derived classes that are like the HttpSessionState class, but that you can customize and that work outside the ASP.NET pipeline. When you perform unit testing, you typically use a derived class to implement members with customized behavior that fulfills the scenario you are testing.

The HttpSessionStateWrapper class derives from the HttpSessionStateBase class. The HttpSessionStateWrapper class serves as a wrapper for the HttpSessionState class. At run time, you typically use an instance of the HttpSessionStateWrapper class to call members of the HttpSessionState object.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
