Section 1.4.3 of the JSP 1.1 Final Spec (page 24).  Its available at
My own understanding:  Session starts at the first time a user in a
particular web browser instance requests a "resource" from Tomcat.  The
session ends after the user hasn't make any more requests - default
configuration this is about 30 minutes (I believe, I've always reset this to
something else).  There are some caveats about the instances of web browsers
- some browsers have bugs that allow a session to be used by two separate
instances if you're using cookie based sessions.

Subject: RE: scope of a bean

Specifically, where does a "session" begin and end? Page and request I think
I can figure out.
