Hi
Just wanted to know some session concepts, whether a session created by using getSession(true) is valid for single browser or can be accessed in different browsers and whats happens if App Server is booted, can we have old sessions.

Thanks
Rajeev

In most cases session are tracked using cookies or URL rewriting so they can not be acessed from different browsers.

As for app server rebooting, and retaining old sessions, this is a feature of some high-end servers, but not for ones like Tomcat.
