if you set, in your web.xml, for example:

<session-config>
<session-timeout>1900</session-timeout>
</session-config>

it means that your session finishes after 1900 minutes
and you loses every information/attributes set in session!

Sorry:

-session-config-
-session-timeout-1900-/session-timeout-
-/session-config-

the session falls after 1900 seconds(not minutes!)

Actually, Giulietta, you were correct the first time; session-timeout is expressed in minutes. "... The specified timeout must be expressed in a whole number of minutes. If the timeout is 0 or less, the container ensures the default behaviour of sessions is never to time out. If this element is not specified, the container must set its default timeout period." from the Servlet 2.4 spec.

Also, timeout is not precise. It may take minutes more to actually timeout.

And the correct format is:

"<session-config>
<session-timeout>30</session-timeout>
</session-config>"
