I know how to login, using modifications to
server.xml and web.xml files ...
how do i logout now, by clicking on say a button
this should then require the user to enter their username/password again to see the secure pages ...
i think it has something to do with invalidating a session. ..
please help

This isn't really a Linux/Unix question, so I've moved it to the Tomcat forum for you.

It's not even truly a Tomcat question. The mechanism's defined as part of the Servlet and (by implication, at least) JSP standards.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
