How do category counters get updated automatically?

In Global.asax, the following code starts the orderpipeline when application starts.

    void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e) {

It would load DataRefresh task defined in your web.config.


    <taskConfiguration defaultProvider="">


            <add name="DataRefresh" type="DotShoppingCart.OpenSource.OrderPipeline.DataRefreshTaskProvider, DotShoppingCart.OpenSource.OrderPipeline" />





DataRefresh would update your category  counter every 2 hours.


    protected override void RunTask(string host, IConfigurationSource cfgSrc) {
