True, although I dont know how to make Tomcat do that, nor do I think it 
should be done, they must expire, or else with time his Tomcat will run out 
of memory.

| How can I configure Tomcat to use permanent cookies as opposed to
| cookies? One of the reasons I'd like to know is to see the behavior of
| method isNew() of HttpSession, which I can do if I'm able to disable
| cookies. As the Javadoc for HttpSession says:
| "A servlet should be able to handle cases in which the client does not
| choose to join a session, such as when cookies are intentionally
| off."

I think the only thing that differentiates between session and
persistent cookies is the presence of an expiration date.  No date ==
session cookie, future date == persistent cookie.

To check the behavior you're curious about, why not just disable cookies
in your browser?  ISTR that TC then just sets the session ID explicitly
in the query string of the URL.
