When a user closes the window (you cannot know the session is killed),
his session is still active.
I want to invalidate his session prior to the session timeout.
Is there a way in SERVLET to invalidate the session of a user who closed the browser without logging out.
Pl help, its urgent.

You can use the session.invalidate() method.

Hi,

There is no way to invalidate the session when the user close the browser window, because there is no way to know the container about this event (Closing window). But yo can programatically invalidate your session in servlet when you want using HttpSession.invalidate() method.

Thanks

The only way possible is to use java script to capture the window Close and call a java script function.... from there you can try invalidating the session....

what do you say, gurus???
