I tested session timeout feature with JDK1.3 and tomcat 3.2 beta 2 on win98.(without apache)
Though I set timeout value to 5 (in $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/web.xml), session expires
after about 30 mins. AFAIK, 30 mins are default session timeout in binary distribution.
Is it a known bug in tomcat 3.2 beta 2?
