If a user closes the browser abruptly, session will not be destroyed, it will be still active, session is destroyed after the session time out period is expired..

How can you do it with HTTP protocol? With HTTP, only client can initiate the conversation. If you close the browser, then how do you notify it to server? You can do it with JS/AJAX. Try it.

There is no session on the client side.

Not reliably, nor will it handle browser or machine crashes, nor if the user has JavaScript turned off.

Agreed! But, how do know it? How did GMail solve this?

I don't understand the question--they're not doing anything out-of-the-ordinary. What behavior are you describing?

We want to invalidate the session, when we close the browser.

Onbeforeunload or something like that is your only hope, and it doesn't cover all circumstances, and covers *none* of them if JavaScript is turned off.

This is a recording: you cannot detect when the browser closes.

hi abimaran,
I think david is right, you need to call Onbeforeunload to invalidate the session. but in Onbeforeunload make a Ajax call and call a servlet which will invalidate the existing session this is the only way you can invalidate the session on browser close.
