Subject Session Strategy
Date Thu, 20 Jan 2005 03:40:12 GMT
To all,

  I have a web application that sets a session attribute with userID and a 
timeout in the config file that times out after 5 minutes in case the user 
walks away.

I am trying to figure out the best strategy to deal with cases where the 
user comes back after 5 minutes and clicks on a button anywhere in the app 
that requires that attribute that just expitred to have a valid value.

Should I,

1> Put code like this in the JSP,

<c:if test="${sessionScope.userID eq 'null'}">
  forward to login page....

2> Or should I just put all the code in the class files, something like 

         Integer userID = 
         if (userID==null){
             return mapping.findForward("failure");

3> ?? I'm open to suggestions!
