public void setMaxInactiveInterval(int interval)
Specifies the time, in seconds, between client requests before the servlet container will invalidate this session. A negative time indicates the session should never timeout.

'client requests'- does this refer to request to jsp's/servlets that participate in session or any page on server/container like html, jsp, etc..
Why this confusion/doubt?
If user opened a jsp page that participates in session and remained idle for period of session max interval ..session will expire, but if I use a javascript setTimeout function which will be called at session max timeout period to open(pop up) a jsp page that participates in session, then I have made a request to container so session is extended, but this way session will never end. But instead of of opening(pop up) a jsp page that participates in session, what if I pop up a simple html, would this still extend the session?
someone please clear my confusion.
Thanks
