Hello,
I need to expire the session whenever anyone closes the window without signout.

I know I can not use java (session) object in javascript functions.

Can I use AJAX ? if yes can you send me some sample application?

Thankyou

Hi Ashish,

i think u can handle it through javascript

u can write a function on the window close event and call a servlet/jsp through which u can invalidate the user session.

try this out i think it should work

I am going to move this to the Servlets forum, and hopefully that is the best forum for you question.

There is no way to reliably detect the closing of the browser. Please see the many posts on this topic already in the HTML forum.
