Can anyone tell me how to maintain session in swing desktop applications?
I want to maintain session for user logins and sessions to be invalidated when logout from application.
I know the session implementation in JSF. Is there a way to do this in swing?

The thing is, sessions in a web application are a way of coping with the fact that HTTP is a stateless protocol. But if you're in a desktop application, you can easily maintain the state as long as the application is running - just keep the data in memory. In a standalone application you don't need the concept of a session at all.

It might be different in a client-server setup. But even then, it's trivial for a client to maintain state.

You can use a WindowListener to be notified when the frame is closed. You can use it to log the user out.
