Configure session timeout for JSF managed bean
Posted on 2010-01-03
I am a newbie to JSF. I had created a managed bean, and made its scope as session. It works well, and I am able to retrieve all the values stored in that managed bean. However, I dont know how to control the session timeout. Basically, I have two related questions:
1. Could you please help in setting up a timeout for a session? For e.g., is it possible to set the session timeout for the managed bean as 30 minutes?
2. Also, the cookie which maintains the JSF session id expires the moment browser is closed. Is it possible to have the cookie expiry set to the same timeout as set for the corresponding session? This way no matter whether the browser is closed or not, the cookie will live as per its timeout/expiry.
