Where does session information get stored? For example, please consider the following statement in a JSP page.
<%= session.getId() %>
Where the ID, max inactive interval or other session related information are stored? Is it on a client side cookie?
Thank you,
Amar Das

The specific details for the sesison are are stored on the server. The client sends the sessionID with every query and the server uses this to associate the session with that person.
That said, the session is stored as a Cookie, and there is other information that can be stored with Cookies such as timeouts etc.
