Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Developer's Guide to Java Web Applications

Enabling the file Session Manager

You can specify file explicitly to change its default parameters. To do so, edit the sun-web.xml file for the web application as in the following example. Note that persistence-type must be set to file.

           <session-manager persistence-type=”file”>
                 <property name=reapIntervalSeconds value=20 />
                 <property name=directory value=sessions />

For more information about the sun-web.xml file, see Chapter 9, Deploying Web Applications.
