Subject RE: Tomcat 4.0 Session Timeout
Date Thu, 20 Sep 2001 21:34:43 GMT
Andy,

> The session timeout is specified in minutes not seconds

The comment in the sample web.xml I have reads as follows:
  <!-- You can set the default session timeout (in seconds) for all
wly   -->
  <!-- created sessions by modifying the value
       -->

This comment says seconds, is the sample web.xml wrong?

Jim

Hi,
  What's 300 x 60? ;-)
The session timeout is specified in minutes not seconds
i.e. you need
<session-config>
<session-timeout>5</session-timeout>
</session-config>

At least this is the way it worked in 3.2.x
