Subject Re: Tomcat 8 Session Timeout
Date Tue, 01 Sep 2015 07:50:51 GMT
Hi Chris,

That's pretty much it (except the path for the app's web.xml looks a
little odd).

We are running multi-instance environment and this is why the path is 
$CATALINA_BASE/conf/web.xml

Are the web services specifying their own session-timeout in the
application-specific web.xml?

No the web-apps are not specifying their own session-timeout. We want to 
run with a stateless environment. Eventually the session-timeout will be 
brought down to 0, but the current setting for 2 minutes doesn't work. The 
sessions do not timeout.

I'd highly recommend that you move that configuration from
conf/web.xml to your own web application's web.xml.
