User timing in a session

Hi,
I am using a JSP login page.
How do I keep track of the user timing from the logon to the logoff.

I would like to store this information in a database.

Can you help me on this.

Thanks

Unless I'm missing something in your question this is fairly trivial. Store a timestamp in the session when the user logs in, compute the elapsed time when they log out, and store it in the DB.

The interesting part comes when: what if they don't log out?

(Hint: session listener)
