changing the session timeout value

I have created a web application and deployed it on weblogic 8.1 server.
I want to change the session timeout period. I know that it can be changed by
changing the value in web.xml or weblogic.xml

Can I change the session timeout value through weblogic console?

There are five different ways through which you can maintain session-timeout values

1. Server Level Lowest level
2. Enterprise Application Overrides the Server Level if Override is selected
3. Web Application Overrides the Server and Enterprise Application settings if Override is selected
4. Application Level (web.xml) Overrides Server, Enterprise Application, and Web Application settings
5. Application Code Overrides all other settings

Better to have your own session-timeout configured in setMaxInactiveInterval of HTTPSession.

Thanks Ashokan!!!

I want to configure the session timeout interval through weblogic 8.1 server console.
Explored all the options but failed to find any option that would allow me to set the
session timeout period.

If you or anyone have any idea about it, please share that with me.

Thanks in advance.
I agree. Here's the link:
