Changing default session timeout Jboss 7

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 has a default session bean timeout of 30 minutes, which is configured in standalone/configuration/standalone.xml

The default HTTP session timeout can’t be modified in EAP 6.

To override default value for your own application, follow the below approaches:

  1. Add an entry in the application web.xml file:
 <web-app>
               <session-config>
                         <session-timeout>15</session-timeout>
               </session-config>
</web-app>

 

2. Programmatically override the session timeout for a particular session.

HttpSession session = request.getSession();
session.setMaxInactiveInterval(10*30);

Note:  In older versions of Jboss Application Server ex. Version 5, it provided a provision of overriding the global session time out setting from the Jboss web.xml file under the location $JBOSS_HOME \server\default\deploy\jboss-web.deployer

 

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