Save Logout time in database

Hi List[],

I am storing the login and logout time in database.

When the user login i am calling the DAO object at that time and inserting in database.
But for log out time i am using session listener.
In side the method

public void sessionDestroyed(HttpSessionEvent arg0) {


i am updating the log out time by comparing the session id and date .
like this : update acces_log set log_out_time =? where session_id=session.getID and date =Date;;

Is this the right way to do this.

Please tell me.

It might now always be accurate since a user might not actually use the logout button. The user could close the browser and walk away. Is it all right if your session times out after the timeout time set in web.xml ?
