Subject Re: Session timeout setting (Getting desperate)
Date Thu, 19 Dec 2002 20:51:20 GMT
Just for a test, I tried moving the web.xml file in the $CATALINA_HOME/conf
directory to my application's WEB-INF directory and set the session-timeout
setting to >60.  Restarted Tomcat and then my application quit working
(wouldn't even load the first JSP page).  Needless to say I removed the
web.xml file from my application and restarted Tomcat to get my app back
working.

Still no luck in fixing the default session timeout in Tomcat.  Any ideas
whatsoever would be very much appreciated...I was supposed to have this
fixed yesterday and I'm totally out of ideas.  Thanks,
Kenny
