Hello All,

    I'm new to jsp. Our present Intranet is designed in jsp with back-end as Oracle. Previously it is

designed by other employees. My present requirement is " I need to create a login page, if the username

and passwords are correct then we will go to another page which is having logo presenet employee log

status, Garde, Department information on the top header" For this they used "Session.putValue("Name",

VariableName), Session.putValue("Dept",VariableName)...". What I need here is how can i close the

sessions if I click "Log out." At present simple I redirected the page to homepage when I click log out (The

problem here is if I click back button I was able to see the previous page but it is not the correct way).

Thanks

Hi,

You could simply call the following function:

session.invalidate();

You can use session.removeAttribute(Name) also, to remove the object from the session.

session.invalidate(); destroys all active sessions. If you want to destroy single sessions only, you can use code as above or simply set the session value to a null value.

Upon logout, forward to a .jsp page with the code to invalidate the session and the redirect back to the homepage.

Upon logout you can do it as

session.setAttribute("X_SESSION", null);

and forward to the intended jsp.

are you creating session there?
Are you checking that session has expired in that jsp?
