Clearing up session objects

In my JSP application I'm finding that I am creating a lot of session objects. I'm beginning to get a bit worried about future performance issues by having so many session objects. Is there a neat way to tidy up after myself? Ideally I would like to kill off session objects when a user closes a particular page. Obviously I do realise that when a user logs off or times out the sessions are tidied up by the server.
Thanks for any pointers.

Hi Jack
u can clear up the session's that u create by using the invalidate() method of the HttpSession object.
Hop above helps
