Howdy Ranchers,

In my application i am using spring web flow, JSF (richfaces). I have a doubt and that is how can i differentiate between session timeout and a call to session.invalidate().

Because in case of session time out i want to redirect user to a Page A and in case user logs out of application i am invalidating the session and want user to redirect to login page.

Any pointer how can i achieve this because i am not able to handle session timeout and call to session.invaidate() differently.

As you are the one invalidating the session, you can take whatever action you want afterwards. There's no need for detection as you know when you are invalidating the session.

I believe, using HttpSession.getLastAccessedTime() and HttpSession.getMaxInactiveInterval() APIs you may be able to acheive the needful.
I'm sure glad that he's gone. Now I can read this tiny ad in peace!
