I am using send redirect to the login page, after removing the cookie but without closing the browser I am not been able to redirect to the login page.


This is the code:

public boolean logOutCookie(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse
res, String findCookie ){
       Cookie[] cookies = req.getCookies();
       if((cookies != null) && (cookies.length > 0)) {
               for(int i=0; i<cookies.length; i++) {
                           Cookie thisCookie = cookies[i];
                       String cookieName = thisCookie.getName();
                        if(cookieName.equals(findCookie )) {
                     //        System.out.println(cookieName + ":" +
thisCookie.getValue()+" : " +thisCookie.getDomain() + ": len :" +
cookies.length   );
                                   thisCookie.setMaxAge(0);
                                   thisCookie.setPath("/");
                               thisCookie.setDomain(".sbc.com");

                               res.addCookie(thisCookie);
                  //           System.out.println("cookie Expired");
                               return true;
                        }
                       }
       }
       return true;
   }

Hi,

Please dont use sendRedirect method. User forward method to the login page. Sendredirect will send new request and response objects.

Thanks
