By using setMaxInactiveInterval you are ensuring that the session is no longer valid after the specified time of inactivity. What you have done look ok.

What are you doing to test this out? Post all your code and explain.

Gobinath Manoj, please use real words when posting to the forums. Abbreviations such as "bcoz" in place of "because" only serve to make your posts more difficult to read and less likely to generate useful responses.

Please read this for more information.
