I cannot find the mention of the logout method in the Servlet 2.4 specification and J2EE api while some of the articles like on Javaworld says it is introduced in Servlet 2.4.Code also does not compile.
Thanks in Advance

The logout method was introduced in Servlets 2.4 public draft and survived in the spec till proposed final draft version 2. Starting from the proposed final draft version 3, it was removed and decided to be discussed in the next version of the specification. Hence you cannot find it in the final specification. The articles may have taken the early drafts and hence the inconsistency.
