Subject Tomcat stops invalidating sessions after session expiry
Date Wed, 14 May 2008 01:41:00 GMT

Tomcat Version 6.014 on Linux.

We have implemented HttpSessionListener in our application.  In that
listener we are doing some special code on sessionDestroyed(mainly closing
connection with oracle database). But after some time tomcat stops calling
that sessionDestroyed method of listener for all session.

When we look sessions in tomcat manager we can see couples of sessions are
expired (we have 30 minute session timeout). We are able to invalidate all
sessions except first expired session using tomcat manager. Even though we
try multiple time to invalidate first expired (problem session) it does not
invalidate. And due to that session tomcat stops invalidate other session
expired after that problem session.

Can you please guide me how to kill that problem session or fix tomcat such
that it invalidates all expired sessions.

Thanks for your help.
