    Logging out a User

    Erik Lindquist Newbie

      Hello all,

      Is there a way to programmatically logout a user? I've seen a bunch of stuff about invalidating the session but that doesn't really clear the authentication. i'm looking for something along the lines of:

      Subject subj = new Subject (true, request.getUserPrincipal(), null, null);
      LoginContext lc = new LoginContext(null, subj);
      lc.logout();

      I realize that that isn't going to come close to working but the idea is there: i want to be able to log a user out.

      I'd also llike to know if there is a login timeout that can be specified in the config.xml files.

      thanks.
