Hi all,

In my application i have 200 static pages(html) and 50 dynamic pages(jsp). The problem is i want to display logout/login buttons in all jsp pages&html pages according per user status. How to know the user is logged in or not while displaying html pages.

You can use servlet filter, which will verify weather user has logged in or not before serving any static pages

Hi,
My suggestion pplies only if you are using basic, digest or form based athentication.
The getUserPrincipal() method of HttpServletRequest returns a java.security.Principal object containing the name of the current authenticated user which can be in turn used to determine if user is really logged on.

Howdy Surender Reddy,

Welcome to JavaRanch

You can use a template rather. Template is something like a common file (similar to header or footer) gets included in each page so that you will go with "single point of change".
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
