First I will explain my project that i am working with. The project is generating PDF document from orcale Forms. In the orcale forms,they have a button called GENERATE,when i click that JSP is invoked.In that JSP you can edit and modify the datas,After that you click the generate button there.Its going to generate the PDF document. NOw coming to the problem i have now
WE have set the session in the JSP for half hour. But my manager wanted to set the session for 11 or 12 hours. THE jsp contains a very long document,so the user may type a 1000 words document is JSP.IF the session is set for half hour,it may expire before the user completing the document in JSP. One of my SENIOR PROGRAMMER is saying..Its not a good idea to set the session for 11 or 12 hours. I thought that session is for security purpose...when the application is opened for a long time, someone else able to see the datas and modify it.
Can anybody tell why we are using session? And If the set the session for 12 hours..wot will happen? And why its not a good idea to set the session for 11 0r 12 hours.
