Subject Re: session expiry

See the servlet specification from java.sun.com.

In particular, session expiration can be set in web.xml.

sessions can also be expired programmatically via its invalidate() method.

Please followup with tomcat-user if you have more questions. This forum is 
for changing the internals of tomcat.
