Is there a way to submit a form when the user closes the browser?
I want to be able to know when a user terminates his session by manually closing the browser.

Hi , I am also facing the same problem. after pressing the "Cancel" button from the .jsp file I want to remove the session attributes from servlet. so I submit the form to a servlet(where i remove the session attributes) and then coded the script window.close().

Window has closed.

But from servlet I am getting the exception as
"weblogic.utils.NestedRuntimeException: Cannot parse POST parameters of request:" If you have an idea please give it advance.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
