Since <session-config> element in web.xml is optional, What will be the session timeout,if we don't have it in web.xml? Will sessions be timed out at all? Or will there be a container specific time out value out of web.xml? This has not been mentioned in servlet specifications. Thanks.

The timeout will be container specific. For example, Tomcat uses 30 minutes, as does WebLogic, I believe. Paul
