How is it that the user session never expires in java ranch ?

Is this something that is specific to cgi programming ? [ I assume that this site is done in cgi ] can this be made possible in J2EE web applications also ?

I couldnt find a better forum to post this.so am posting it here.

Thanks!

Javaranch uses a cookie (not a session cookie) to persist login data.
It's not really a session in the way that JSP or ASP sessions work.

If you want to see exactly what's going on, download and install the LiveHttpHeaders plugin. With it, you can see exactly what headers are being sent back and forth.

I am not sure of this, but it seems that JavaRanch stores the session in client side cookies.
