Hi

How to kill all user sessions using servlets or how to kill user cookie?

We have a requirement to make the application non-editable for certain time. after that we will make the application editable. We will send out mail to users to logoff the application. Some users who does not logoff are able to use the application, this should be avoided. Since User information are stored as cookies, they were able to use the application.

Please let me know.

While you could invalidate the sessions by keeping track of them and iterating through the list, without a request/response cycle to the user's browser, there is no way to affect the cookie.

Thanks for your response.

How can I keep track of sessions? by implementing SessionListener?

But how can I call session destroyed method from servlet? or how can I get the sessions that were created?

Record them in the application context as they are created.
