This is a simple program I wrote to test whether the session is new or old.
What I cant get is , after I call session.invalidate() , how are the lines after session.invalidate being run.
like printing out the values of attribute.
Also , the session object is the same .

You've already taken out the attributes out from the session before invalidating it. Try calling session.getAttribute after invalidating it, you'll get an IllegalStateException...

Invoking getAttribute() after invalidate() will definitely cause a runtime exception ,
But doesn't the attrbute value get destroyed when the session is invalidated??

you are storing them in the String Objects , nothing happens to the String objects.

Only the attributes which belonged to the session is no longer available.
