What is the default session timeout for web applications deployed on Tomcat5.5 ? Is it browser specific? In my web applications default timeout is mentioned neither in web.xml nor in code.
$CATALINA_BASE/conf/web.xml and find this
<!-- ==================== Default Session Configuration ================= --> <!-- You can set the default session timeout (in minutes) for all newly --> <!-- created sessions by modifying the value below. --> <session-config> <session-timeout>30</session-timeout> </session-config>
all webapps implicitly inherit from this default web descriptor. You can override session-config as well as other settings defined there in your web.xml.
This is actually from my Tomcat 7 (Windows) but I think 5.5 conf is not very different
