hai all
I am currently using appache web server for running my JSP applications.I want to keep track sessions in my application.So i used 'session.setMaxInactiveInterval(3600)' method for extending the expiring time to one hour.but on compilation of the jsp page an error occurs 'No such methods',the same happened when i used 'session.setAttribute()' but i corrected it by using sessin.getValue().where could have went wrong.
with regards sajeev

If you can use getValue but not getAttribute, and setMaxInactiveInterval is not there it means you have an old version of the servlet API installed.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
