1, 2, 3.  Sessions are managed by the servlet container not by Spring so it depends on what you are using.
4, 5.   In a general sense, the only visibility of sessions that you have is via events received with a HttpSessionListener. You would have to track the sessions as they are created/destroyed and you can then use HttpSession.invalidate()

1. Session is stored on the server
2. In spring mvc application, depending on the kind of configuration you are using, You can use the @SessionAttribute annotation of spring or set the session attribute using Spring's HttpSession.setAttribute() method
3. Depending on the kind of application you are developing. It is usually smarter to use server side session management
4. As previiously stated, you can use HttpSessionListener of spring

however we retrieve only one session in the code. i want to retrieve all the session.
I don't understand what you saying here. All the active sessions were held in the Hashtable. The test JSP, in my code, demonstrates how to access them.
