I have a web site running IPlanet web server.
I am using default authentication.
I need to be able to logout user from the web page without closing the browser windows.
Does anyone know how to do that from JSP/Servlet?

Hi,
Use session attrubute in your servlets. Once a user attemps to log out, set the session.invalidate(). That's it. Good luck.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
