killing a servlet session or an old servlet mapping value in the browser bar...what to do?


I am trying to kill a servlet session in which it seems it should work but it is not. In my doGet method of the Logout Servlet,

I try request.getSession().invalidate(); but it is still valid when i check in debugging.
also when it simply redirects to a servlet mapping uri which is not existent..(it was before and i renamed it and it's not even in the project as a string...) I also restarted the server. I am using the latest Kepler with Tomcat 7.

What to do?

Invalidate should work. How do you check in debugging?
