Hi all,

How to set session timeout in a jsp page as well as a servlet.
I have set the session-timeout in web.xml as

<session-config>
<session-timoeout>1</session-timoeout>
</session-config>

and also set the session timeout in the servlet as

session.setmaxInactiveInterval(60);

I am using websphere and the timeout was set as 40

but the session is not timing out.
what should i do now??
Am i wrong anywhere?
Thanks in advance.

If you have copy-pasted the code then there is typo in both cases:

(1) In the first case timeout is spelled wrong
<session-timoeout>1</session-timoeout>


(2) In the second case "m" in max needs to be capital
session.setmaxInactiveInterval(60);
