I have 2 webserver, each one tied with an app server.  The session timeout has been set to 4 hours.  But sometimes after couple of minutes, the user is kicked back to the login page.  I am not sure if HttpSession.invalidate is the cause?  Pls advise.

Thanks.

Yes, the invalidate() method DID kill all the sessions, to kill only a particular session object, try use the removeAttribute method:

Example:

<%

session.setAttribute("test", "124");

out.println(session.getAttribute("test")+"<br>");

session.removeAttribute("test");

out.println(session.getAttribute("test")+"<br>");

%>

Hope this helps

Thank you.  I have another question ... What is "test" and "124" in session.setAttribute("test", "124");  Is that any random name, or does it have to be the userid?  Pls advise.

Thanks.

Possible, above is just an example on how to kill a particular session object. "test" will be the object name, while "124" is the value associated within the session object.

Hope this's clear, cheers :-)
