Hi all,..

I need some help on this.. i am not a javascript expert

IS there a way that you can send a request to Servlet from javascript??
If so, please let me know. I appreciate your help on this matter.

This is my issue,.. presently working on an intranet application, where users do not log off but close the browser, i do not want to use session time-out and HttpSessionListener to handle removing the session on the server.. because for some reasons we are putting a big value for time-out .. so somehow with a cool javascript i can detect a browser close and ,.. in the javascript when a browser is closed i want to send a request to a servlet which handles the Log Off, .. which in other words .. i want to clear the session on the server even if a user closes the browser, by detecting browser close and then sending a request to servlet..

All the users use IE , so i have no problem to check if this javascript is working fine in all browsers or not...

Thanks again for your help.

PS: this is the link to the javascript for detecting browser close and atleat it is working fine with IE
