Subject RE: disable session support in Tomcat
Date Wed, 18 Jun 2003 17:53:29 GMT

The Servlet Specification requires container to support sessions.  So no, you can't disable
it ;)  You can:

- Download the tomcat source and hack out the session-related items, rebuild it, and have
your own session-less servlet container ;)

- Have very short session timeouts, e.g. 1 minute.

- Rethink why you want sessions disabled ;)
