Log-out on Apache and Tomcat

Hello again guys,
Some time ago I vaguely recall someone posting a question on how to get an Apache or Tomcat session to allow the user to specifically log out after having logged in, rather than simply having their session timeout or closing the browser window.
I've been looking around and probably just not recognised the article, but nevertheless cannot find it.
Question in full: How do you tell Apache and Tomcat (separately) that you want their session to logout? (Is this one of those "can't" or "it's easy, but no-one reaslises it" things?)

I have tomcat 5 and I have the same question, how can an User authenticated by tomcat close his session by click on a link or something like that.
I agree. Here's the link:
