Hi,
I got a problem with session timeout on my current project.
I already set session timeout to 120 minutes on the web.xml file and I never change the web.xml file nor the classes, but sometime (while mostly using Netscape 6 browser) when I left the jsp pages untouched for about 20 minutes(our jsp pages are protected by security, after session time out pages will thrown to login page) pages will thrown to login page.
I found out this is caused by the session timeouted.
Did somebody ever experienced it before?

Try setting the value of timeout in jsp and see if it works.
HttpSession session = request.getSession();
session.setMaxInactiveInterval(interval);
where interval is no of seconds for how long the session object will be kept alive between client requests.

Thanks, Snigdha..
I've tried on one or two pages, so far the session doesn't time outed under 20-30 minutes, but I didn't sure it works 100%, perfectly.
So I didn't apply it to my pages, cos' there are hundreds of jsp pages I have.
Regards,
JG
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
